Librarians provide resource expertise in a variety of ways, one of which is by making curated lists by topic that we call Subject Guides or Course Guides. You might also hear librarians refer to Subject Guides as Research Guides.

Subject guides: These are guides that include resources on a general subject area.

You may view all online tutorials and research guide here or select specific guides:

Course Guides: These are guides that include resources specific to your assignments and projects in a specific class. If a guide for your course does not exist and you would like one created, tell your instructor to notify your school's librarian.

Citation Tools & Guides

Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab) is the go-to site for citation style guides and general writing help. Bookmark it.

There are many online citation tools EasyBib and BibMe are just a couple. If you are doing serious research and need a citation management tool that goes beyond the free tools that are available, then we suggest looking at Endnote.

Zotero is a browser plug-in that interfaces with virtually any type of online research and library catalog.
