Start Your Research at the Meriam Library ReSEARCH Station

You will want to start your research on the library's homepage. Everything from books and e-books, journals, databases, and more can be accessed from the Meriam Library ReSEARCH StationBooks are a particularly good place to start your research. They have a wide scope and can include anything from background information to detailed criticism. Scholarly articles tend to be more focused and assume a higher level of expertise.

When searching the library catalog keep your search terms to a minimum. 1 or 2 keywords should work fine. For example if you wanted to research Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway you could try searching "Mrs. Dalloway criticism" or simply "Mrs. Dalloway".  For the best results try a variety of different searches. 

Once your search results display look at the records for more information. Often the subject headings will lead you to more materials.
