Your literature review is an important part of your research. Without it, you cannot make informed decisions on your research.
There are multiple places that you can search for information. Here are some recommendations:
Scout is the library catalog and is the best place to begin your research. You can either click here or type your keywords into the box at the top of this page to start your search.
There are a variety of databases that include a wide range of subjects. These are a great place to continue your research. You may find that some of the results are the same that you found through Scout, but this isn't the case with every database. In addition, some of the thesaurus tools and keyword suggestions make using these databases very useful.
Once you've searched the general databases, there are several subject-specific databases that would be useful to search. These databases will provide more specialized resources that would be helpful to your research.
