Why Start at the Research Desk?

Not familiar with some terminolgy a professor used in class?

Need to know who the major scholars or what the significant lines of inquiry in your field are?

Subject encyclopedias, bibliographies, and research guides can provide background context and information to help bring you up to speed.

Not sure where to begin your research project?

Reference resources can be great keyword and thesis generators to help you search the library catalog and databases more efficiently.
