Starting Your Search

It can be intimidating to use the library and start a research project, but fear not we (the librarians and your professor) are here every step of the way.

  • It helps to start by writing a list of terms that you will use in your search.
  • Keep notes as you research, the terms you used, where you searched, what you found.
  • Once you have some terms do some background research to add more terms to your list.
  • Now you have a bit more information on your topic start looking for more in depth information.
  • Search for books, use the bibliography to find even more books or articles. 
  • Use library databases to search for articles.
  • As you encounter words, time periods, names, places etc. that you don't know circle back to do more background reading.

Library Catalog - Books

To find books (and more!) use DePauw's Discovery search. It will also search materials owned by libraries all over the world.

Using Interlibrary Loan

Sometimes we don't have access to the item you want, but we have a way of getting it for you...Interlibrary Loan.  If you don't find a link to full-text or a call number, you'll see this button: 

If you request an item using Interlibrary Loan, it will take up to 7-10 days to be received. When the item comes in, you will be notified by e-mail. Some items will be available electronically in your ILL account; others you will pick up at the Circulation desk.

Login to Interlibrary Loan to enter information for a request that you need to make manually, to check the status of a request, or to request a renewal.
