These Library Research Guides are collections of resources, links, and information that provide you with help as you start your research.

In this Guide, I have included two Instruction Tutorials. The first is on getting started with research, how to use scholarly articles, how to cite in APA, and provides an overview of the library website. If this is your first term at UR, this video is a good place to start: TOP 12 TIPS for Getting Started at Boatwright. The second tutorial is on literary analysis and walks through the databases and resources to use for literary research assignments.

Whenever you need help or have questions about library resources, research, or your own assignments, please let me know. You can email me or schedule an appointment — all of my contact information is included on this guide.
