Below are listed some of the library's resources that librarians typically suggest to students as they are starting the research process. Make sure to read the resource's description in order to learn about the content you can find in each resource. These resources contain both scholarly (typically from academic journals) and popular articles (found in newspapers, magazines, non-scholarly journal publications), so you'll need to pay attention to what type of information you're looking at.
