Start Your Research

OneSearch is the library catalog, there you can search almost everything in the library at once- books, media, news sources, scholarly journals, and more.

Library databases are smaller collections of scholarly articles, news sources, images, media and more, which may be organized thematically on different topics.

Google Scholar - a resource for both scholarly and non-scholarly articles. If you are on campus, you will find links to scholarly articles in our databases.

Search Tips:

  • Brainstorm a few key words or phrases to help get you started. These could be people, places, or topics.
  • Decide what types of resources you are looking for (books, chapters, scholarly articles, news, etc.) and use the appropriate filters.
  • Limit your search to scholarly or peer-reviewed work if desired using the filters.
  • Look at the library's other research guides on different topics and types of sources including film and literature.
  • If you can't find an article or book you need, check out our service called interlibrary loan - we can request materials from other libraries if we don't have them at UR.
