Library Corner

Have you explored the library's article databases (Electric Library, ProQuest Direct, InfoTrac OneFile, and Science Direct), but had trouble finding the specific article, information or topic you wanted? Don't fear, you can get quick and easy help from the library staff! Below are some useful ways in which the library can help.

We can...
  • Show you how to improve your search in the library's databases.
  • Make sure you have the correct information (title, author, issue, etc.), if you want a specific article.
  • Search our databases for articles on the same topic.
  • Help you explore the databases available to you through your local public library.
  • Help you find your local library, if you don't already know.
  • Search for the author's websites or other sites that may have the information you're looking for, but can't find through search engines.
  • Find out if you can find the article in the library's physical collection, on the shelves.
