About this guide

This web site is designed to help guide you through the research process. We cover many different topics, such as how to find articles, coming up with good keywords, and citing your sources. You can navigate through the guide in any order. 

If you have a specific question about doing research, such as how to locate the full text of the article, you can go directly to that part of the guide (in this case, under finding articles).

Each module has a brief explanation about a specific part of the research process. Most of the modules under each tab have a link in them called <Learn More>. This link will take you to a more in depth tutorial or guide on the topic. At the end of the tutorial, click on the Return to Tutorial link to return to this home page.
