Welcome to all WRTG 2010 students!
This research guide has been developed by your friendly librarians at the Marriott Library.
What this research guide intends to do for you is offer a foundation for research within and outside of traditional libraries. We have carefully developed an easy to follow curriculum that you can access at anytime to learn about or review resources that the Marriott Library owns, subscribes to, or utilizes.
Learning how to navigate the library's resources and figuring out how to use discovery tools to find materials, like the library catalog, can be a daunting task, but we aim to make it as easy and understandable as possible.
This research guide introduces you to the research process and offers you lessons to become acquainted with research skills and strategies that you will continue to develop throughout your academic career. There is so much to learn about research and how to do it well that it must be acquired little by little over time, or else you can become overwhelmed. This guide is a place where you can always return to review the tutorials when you need them.
Follow the tabs in order from left to right to follow the sequence of the lessons.
