CSES 4854 Research Resources: Getting Started

Tips for Using Library Resources

This guide will walk you through the process of searching for, selecting, accessing, and using the research resoruces that you need for CSES 4854, and beyond!  

A few tips to get you started:

1.  Don't be afraid to ask for help.  Simply contact your librarian directly--Inga Haugen (ihaugen@vt.edu).  

2.  Check out the CSES Subject Guide.

3  Use Summon to conduct a Google-like search of most of our library resources.  While it's not a disciplinary database, like the ones that I recommend to you on this guide, it can help you gain a broad overview of a particular research topic or question.  

4.  Use Interlibrary Loan in order to request any items (articles, books, etc.) that are not available from VT Libraries.  

5.  When trying to access articles and other resources, look for the Get VText box:
