New LibGuides

Monday, May 30, 2011

The Library has two new LibGuides (also known as Research Guides) we want toPhoto courtesy of Argonne National Laboratory (cc) share with you!

The first may be of special interest to business students, as it will help get you started on industry-specific research. Explore library resources such as databases, electronic books, industry associations, key data and statistic sources, and more. Find out about industry ratios and norms, which compare the success of your business to other businesses in the same industry.  This guide will even help you cite some of those key sources. Click here to visit the new Industry Research LibGuide, or visit the Guides by Course & Subject page to find this research guide, as well as others.

Photo courtesy of (cc)The second new LibGuide was created for a visiting group of Psychology 12 students from a Vernon high school. It provides a great introduction to psychology resources available through the Library. It also guides users through the process of finding books, articles, background sources, and of course, help with APA citation style! For more in-depth information on finding information in the area of psychology, check out the main Psychology LibGuide.
