Research: Information as Value & Google

The Library collects varied materials useful to all of your projects.  Whenever you're working on a project and you have a question and need to look for information, you're doing research.

We curate our materials - we're always looking materials that have reliable and accurate information.  We also work hard to find materials that help you to create works without you needing to do extensive copyright research to see if you can use that image, sound effect, song or music track in your project.

We also provide personal service! Beat that, Google! You can stop by any time the Library is open or you can email our staff to ask for information.  It doesn't matter if your question is short and quick or long and involved - we love helping connect you with the materials that will help you create an amazing project!

When you search in Google, you're getting a lot of results - some useful and others, well not so much, but you might not know it. Library resources save time and the resources are targeted to you're studies.  You don't have to lose time wading through dubious resources that do not have what you're looking for or provides misinformation.
