You've gotten an assignment from your instructor that requires research. Where do you begin? The Library Home Page! It's your gateway to doing research when you're off campus.
Encyclopedias and Background Information
If you are not familiar with your topic, the resources below can provide an overview and introduce you to the associated vocabulary. This will help you later when you are trying to think of search terms to enter in a database.
For off-campus access to the online databases and eBooks, you'll need your student ID number and portal password. Make sure you are accessing the databases directly from the library website.
