Additional Research Guides

These additional library research guides may prove helpful to you based on your area of research:

Citing Sources

The library offers you a free subscription to Refworks, an online citation management system. Refworks will help you to keep your references organized and will generate a bibliography based on your citation style preference. Library catalog records and databases will often include "export to" links that will allow you to connect the research you find with your Refworks account.

Intro to Human Rights Research

Research on human rights may prove tricky as it is often interdisciplinary in nature. Depending on your topic, you may need to explore resources that deal with human rights in the ancient world or track down conference proceedings that discuss modern day global human trafficking networks.

This webpage provides you with links that are good places to get started with your research, but remember that the information here is not exhaustive! You can always get in touch with me if you need help determining where you should look for information and analysis about your research topic.
