Searching Basics

How to discover different types of sources

"I can't find anything on my topic..."

Let us help you get started -- the easy way!  By following the tabs in this (really) quick guide, you will be searching like a pro (or at least a pro-in-training) in no time. Treat it like a game:  follow along, step by step; open another tab or browser window so that you can start at the library homepage, search along in real-time and try your own keywords; try out different tools and options to find out how to "level up" while there is no assignment hanging over your head.

You can find what you need...with just a little help!
