Research Guides

Library staff have been working on changes to tools like subject and course guides and listings of selected websites. These are now all grouped together in a new interface called Research Guides. These guides are available by major, special topic, and, in some cases, by course. If you are looking to start your research, the guides might be able to help you figure out which databases to search or how to identify some websites to use. We’re working on adjustments and refinements based on your comments and feedback and are adding new guides every week. The latest addition? Elections 2008. If you have any questions, please contact the Reference Desk at (617) 879-2222 or
