ENGL 1500 - K. Kulzer-Reyes: Books and Articles

A library guide for research assistance for Professor Kelly Kulzer-Reyes' English 1500 classes.

Finding books in the Library

When starting a research project, it is helpful to find background sources that will give you an overview of a topic. You can find strong foundational information in encyclopedias by searching in Credo Reference, an online encyclopedia database. Encyclopedias are considered Reference Sources. Your professor may not allow you to use an encyclopedia chapter as a resource in your paper; however, you can use the encyclopedia chapter to understand basic concepts, moving on to other books on the topic that you can use in your research paper.

Check out the Library Research: The Process for more help in starting your research paper.

Search the library catalog for print and online books.  Type your keywords into the box below, for example developmental disabilities AND medication.
