Information resources are all around you. These resources include educators like faculty and librarians and also resources you may find in print and online. If you are researching a topic, begin using the reference books, especially subject specific encyclopedias. They will give you a general overview of your topic.
Once you narrow down your topic, and decide exactly what you are looking for, begin to search for articles using the library databases. The databases are unique, and in some cases, a little more difficult to navigate than Google. Do not hesitate to ask us for tips on how to customize your search so that you find articles with the highest level of specificity to support your thesis or research.
