Using Crediable Resources

 

Why seek information and resources from other libraries?

While the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library offers a wide variety of resources to suit your research needs, we also understand that students may also need resources that are difficult to provide remotely.

This guide will also help you locate libraries near you that can supplement the extensive resources already provided to you by the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library. 

Follow the instructions below:

1) Find Books

Use this page to find print and eBooks resources on your topic. 

2) Find Articles

This is where you'll find articles of information for your topic. There are multiple databases you can use, and you should them as they cover varied aspects of your topic. You'll also be able to find information about your profession, art, culture, and gender.

3) Find Reference/Background Information

Use these resources to find general information in databases like Credo Reference or Gale Virtual Reference. 

4) Find Images

If you need to have images for your presentation, there are very good resources to help you find ones that visually represent your topic.

5) Schedule an Appointment

Here's where you can schedule your group to meet with a Research Consultant at the Library.

 

Don't leave your research until the last minute. Use the Assignment Scheduler to organize and plan your research assignment.
