By the end of this module, you should be able to:
Omni is a discovery tool that allows you to search a large portion of the library's collections. Use Omni to find books, e-books, journal articles, and much more.
For more details about Omni and all its features, consult its dedicated guide How to use Omni
You may want to search some subject specific databases. Start by identifying the broad subject area of your topic and then consult the appropriate discipline specific research guide.
Multidisciplinary databases are very good starting points as they provide you with samples of resources in a wide variety of subject areas.
Finally, it's important to remember that you should have a sound grasp of your topic before you start your research. If you can't easily discuss or explain your topic to friends and/or family, we recommend that you gather more background information. Any gaps in understanding will cause issues in formulating your research question and understanding the literature you will gather to write your final assignment.
