A guide for valuable skills and resources for beginning library research

Getting started

  1. Use reference sources to jumpstart your research, to get ideas, and more.
  2. Find books, journal titles and media in Stanford's Online Catalog - Searchworks.
  3. Find articles in selected databases. Note: Stanford subscribes to over 1000 databases that index articles and books on various topics. Since there are so many databases we recommend a select subset of databases which will give you access to articles in a wide variety of subject areas.
