- For relevant books or journal articles make sure you check the references at the end for additional research sources.
- Ten-minute rule: If you haven't had success finding relevant information after ten minutes stop and ask a librarian for help: http://library.weber.edu/ref/askalibrarian/default.cfm
- If there is an academic journal that focuses on your research topic do a specific search of that journal through the Stewart Library's electronic journals: http://library.weber.edu/ref/ejournals/default.cfm.
- When doing a datababse search look at the 'subject terms' listed when you click on a specific article. These terms can further refine your search.
- DO NOT use Wikipedia as an information source. But you might want to check out the references at the bottom of a Wikipedia article for more credible source for starting your information search.
To access the Stewart Library's research databases go to http://library.weber.edu/. If you are doing research from home you will need your Wildcat Username and your password to gain full access to the library's resources.
