4 Things You Need to Do for Your Research:
- Meet with a research librarian in your field of study. Librarians can help you find the books, articles, and other resources you need and answer any questions you have.
- Learn how to use the libraries. Attend a library workshop or make an appointment to meet with a librarian to learn how to use our library catalog, HOLLIS.
- Learn how to use citation tools to save the information you use in your research as you go and easily create in-text citations, footnotes, and bibliographies.
- Use the library's research guides to find the best materials within your subject area.
