New ‘Best Bets’ Research Guide

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Crunched for time? The Library knows how busy students are at this time of year, so we have created a Best Bets Research, Writing, & Citing  research guide. This guide contains only the most important information and the top links, videos, and tutorials.

If you have used our previous Research, Writing, & Citing guide you know that it is packed full of useful information, tips, and tricks. This guide is not going anywhere! It is still available when you have more time to find information. In the mean time, check out the new condensed version and make your research, writing, and citing quick and easy.

Here are just a few examples of what you can find on this new guide:

Questions? We want to hear them! Send comments or questions to the Library and an individual will contact you.
