Research Guides

How to Use the Research Guides

Research Guides are online tools developed by Westminster College librarians to help you find research resources for specific academic disciplines. Need to find a journal article, a book, or data? View the guide for your subject area in order to connect to databases that will help you track down scholarship and information in that field. Each guide also includes a page about citing sources and the contact information for a librarian who can help with your research.

Faculty: Contact your subject’s liaison librarian to suggest edits to a research guide.

Citation Resources

Properly citing your sources shows that you’ve done research to become knowledgeable about your topic and helps you avoid plagiarism. Explore citation resources to learn how to correctly cite sources based on style.
