The purpose of this guide is to highlight and connect you to a variety of resources that will help you with your work here at Ohio University. If you have any questions or comments then you can email Hanna Schmillen at email@example.com or visit our Get Help library page.
This orientation series will help you be successful in your program as you will be constantly asked to do research. Ohio University's Alden Library has extensive resources from: research articles, textbooks, case studies, and APA resources. Ohio University's Alden Library is also used for some assigned readings.
Searching the library for resources is a bit trickier than searching Google, so be sure to go through this Library 101 Orientation Series and explore this guide through the tabs on the left. There are tips on how to search databases effectively, getting full text to journal articles, brainstorming your research topics, and all of my (Hanna, your librarian) contact information.
If you are completing this for credit, please do not miss the quiz below as directed in your syllabus. Let me know if you have any questions.
