Course Guides

Reference librarians assemble course guides that provide useful resources geared towards a particular assignment or project. If your class visited the library or a librarian came to your class, there's most likely a course guide to accompany the research session.

Subject Guides

If you're conducting research on a topic and are seeking suggestions for information sources, take a look at the guides based on a specific subject. These listings point to both subscription sources and trusted free Internet sites.

How to Find Guides

If you're just getting started with research, you may not know where to begin. The How to Find guides can assist you in understanding the ways in which you can locate sources depending on the type and kind that you need.

Catalog & Database Guides

Books, Media and more (part of Research@UWW) is the Library's online catalog, which helps you locate materials physically housed in the library, as well as titles available in our online book collections. Most of the Library's online databases are designed to help locate periodical (journal, magazine and newspaper) articles, but some also help find statistics, book chapters, dissertations, curriculum guides and other materials. The librarians have created guides to highlight features of these resources that make research that much easier.
