In this guide you will find help with:

  1. Finding books: This tab will explain how to find books (print and electronic) using Milner's catalog. Book sources can be very helpful when being introduced to a new topic, or finding background information about a topic.
  2. Finding articles: this tab will explain how to find scholarly, peer reviewed articles using Milner's databases. Scholarly articles are important to include as in-depth analysis on a topic.
  3. Finding news: this tab will explain how to find news articles using Milner's databases. News sources are great evidence for discovering the most current information about a topic.
  4. Finding links to Useful non-library sites. These links will help you find credible information on your topics from trusted sources, like government sites or data-gathering sites.
  5. Evaluating sources: this tab will suggest some strategies for thinking critically about different sources in order to choose the best examples for your project.
  6. Citing: this tab will help you cite the sources you select correctly.
