Research Guides are online guides that provide quick access to databases, websites, books, ebooks and other resources on a given topic or for a specific class or assignment. Research Guides are a great starting point for your research, and have been created in consultation with your instructor.
It does what it says: it “guides your research” to the best sources to begin with on that topic. Guides are set up with tabs that lead you to subtopics within that guide, such as article databases, websites, books/ ebooks, citing, choosing a topic, search strategies, and more.
Find your topic on the alphabetical list. Then explore the guides either by the subject area or the guide created for your particular class. It’s that easy!
To use resources off campus, you will need to activate your student ID with the Circulation Desk (847-214-7337 or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
