If you find yourself struggling with finding resources, constructing a thesis, or producing a strong paper, schedule an appointment with a research librarian. McCain Library’s research librarians are working remotely to meet one-on-one with students who need help with their studies. If you are finding the transition to virtual classes difficult, check in with a research librarian to see how you can organize your research from home!
Not ready to take that step? That’s okay! Use one of the many LibGuides McCain librarians have created to help guide students through their research. Follow the link above to find LibGuides on various topics and areas of study. Some general research guides we highly recommend are:
Guide to Library Research – The definitive starting point for someone new to research
Copyright and Fair Use – A guide to the ethical use of sources
Primary Sources – Useful for finding primary sources in a library catalog
Zotero – A great tool for saving sources and citations
If you want to know what services the library currently offers, check the Continuity of Library Services LibGuide for updated information. McCain Library staff want to do their best to aid students and faculty during this time. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments on how we can better help you, please email the library at email@example.com.
Stay well, Scotties!
