  •  Just getting started with ideas or need ways to develop your topic?

    • Roam the shelves in the library. Books are categorized by the Library of Congress Classification system (LC chart), a subject-based alpha-numeric convention. In the reference section of the library you'll find:
      • Encyclopedias cover the entire range of human knowledge in brief. A search for a basic concept recalls every mention of that concept in the encyclopedia, indicating different contexts for it and some of the fields of study that have explored it.
      • Subject specific encyclopedias cover the knowledge base of a single discipline in brief. A search here can familiarize you with some of the different contexts within which your topic has been discussed in a discipline. Reference materials cannot be checked out of the library, but you are welcome to make photocopies or take notes.
    • Your textbook introduces a topic to non-specialists and generally includes a bibliography of books and articles consulted.

    • Browse topics in a library database:
    • Government Information: Scan by topic to find government information and services on USA.gov.
  • After using any of these resources, always double-check your citations against the most current published guide.

    Style Guides

    Below you will find resources for the most commonly used citation styles from the style guide homepages, as well as, the Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL).
