Starting Your Search

 

  • 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.  Call numbers starting with A-D are on the second floor, E-Z are on the third floor. 
  • Use library databases to search for articles.
  • As you encounter words, theories, etc. that you don't know circle back to do more background reading.

The librarians and your professor are here every step of the way.

Finding Sources

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