We can dig it
Research at the university level can be intimidating. If you have
questions about how to find information, our librarians are always
ready to help, but sometimes it is good to have a written explanation
that lets you see the big picture and learn at your own pace. These
guides introduce concepts that may help you understand research
assignments and learn to find good sources.
