How Should I Start My Search?: Home

It Depends on What You Want to Do.....

Search MU Library Databases WorldCat Research Guides Internet Google Scholar



I want to search broadly, using one search.

I am looking for a book that MU Library owns.

I can use all kinds of information, including books, journal articles, newspapers, etc.

I need articles for my assignment.  

I need to use a subject-specific database.


I need a book that MU Library does not own.

I need guidance in launching my research; I need sources that have been selected specifically for my course and my research assignment.

I do not need academic sources; my information need is casual. 

I have already searched the library's various resources, and I want to see what other scholarly sources might be available for my topic.
