For nearly every subject or topic you are interested in, there is a Research Guide to help you get started. Before starting a new project or assignment, take a few minutes to browse through the list of guides. Look for the ones that are most relevant and go through them for help, advice, insight, and to point you in the right direction.
Familiarize yourself with the many online Indexes and Databases provided to you through the Rutgers University Library System. Once you know what sources are available, you will be able to quickly identify which ones to go to first for whatever research project you are working on. Once you have tested them out and are comfortable in using them, you will be prepared, ready to tackle whatever assignment your Instructors send your way.
