Tools for researchers

The Library Homepage is the place to begin library research. On the homepage you will find links to some of our most-used resources, including OneSearch, the URSUS Library Catalog, and the Research Guides & Article Databases.

Library instruction classes scheduled during class time help students learn how to do library research. Librarians work closely with faculty in designing course-related classes. Interested faculty members may visit the Library's Faculty Information page to learn more.

Getting started

The Library Research Guides are a good place to start your research if you know your subject area of research and the types of resources you need. If you aren't quite sure what to focus on, our Reference resources can help provide background for research topics, dates of events, brief biographies and literary criticism. Check out the Find a Topic page on many research guides for advice on getting started.
