The objective of this guide is to teach basic skills for doing research and information literacy skills to find, retrieve, analyze, and use the information effectively for lifelong learning. Learning these skills provides access to the ever expanding universe of information and knowledge.
The guide consists of a series instructional sections that are designed to teach the basic concepts of library research.
Librarians at the Research Information Desk can teach you how to access and effectively use the variety of materials in the library as well as in the research databases. If you need an extensive amount of help, librarians will provide one-on-one instructional tutoring for students doing research.

You can also request one-on-one research assistance by completing our form: Research Consultation.
