Things to Know

  • Search results are divided into tabbed categories. Remember to check all tabs. Also, to the left of your results, there will appear a list of other subjects one can use to narrow or broaden a search.
  • There is a Toolbox link near the top of the page that contains advice on things like how to pick and analyze a topic, to writing a paper and citing sources. Under this link you can also find a Research Guide, with detailed instructions of how to evaluate concepts, think critically and more.
  • One can also change the size of the text/font by clicking on one of the "A's" in the upper right-hand corner. The bigger the A, the bigger the font.
