Doing Research in the Shaw-Leslie Library

This guide includes general information about using the Shaw-Leslie Library and locating resources for research.

This guide is designed to show you where to find good, reliable information for your research projects. Sources of information can be found both in the library and online. Be sure you are using the kinds of information that are right for your project. 

It's April! Cool nights, rain showers, and warmer days forecast good times to read, do a puzzle or finish a project. Don't forget that the library will extend hours beginning April 28th through the end of final exams.


The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is a place students can get free writing assistance at any point in the research process. 

For a refresher on the steps to writing a research paper, ways to search and how to avoid plagiarism take a look at the Research and Writing Tips published at the Literary Reference Center.
