Research Tip: Use Reference Sources

Use Reference Sources

Begin your research by using reference sources to get: 

  • ideas for your paper 
  • overviews of a topic
  • a list of recommended resources

Go beyond Wikipedia by using librarian-recommended reference sources.

Research Tip: Borrow It

Borrow It!

If we don't own a book, or if our copy is checked out, you can borrow a copy from another library. Just search for the book in Williams WorldCat, and then choose "Request Item" to borrow it.

If you need help, just ask!
