Research Support

See our extensive collection of research guides here.  These guides (presented here as an A-Z list but also available grouped by subject) are designed to lead you to the most appropriate resources for the discipline you are studying. 

Many instructional videos can be found here

eBooks and Streamed Videos

We have created a guide to finding and using ebooks. 

If you would like for the library to acquire an eBook not already available in the catalog, then submit a request in the Purchase Request Form. To browse new eBooks, visit the New eBooks List

Streamed videos are available via Kanopy.  Access our Streaming Video guide for information about requesting Kanopy titles, embedding Kanopy videos into Canvas, freely available media resourcs, and more.
