The Library's research databases are critical for gathering credible articles and other materials for research assignments and research-based projects and papers. To explore the research databases provided by the Mundt Library:
Explore Course & Subject Research Guides
Research guides are designed to combine resources and research tips in a guide to help students do more effective and efficient research for courses and majors.
Learn how to find out if the Library subscribes to a specific journal
You can find out if the library has a specific journal or magazine. To find out if the library has the full content in print or online, search for the title of the journal or magazine in Journal Finder. If the journal is found, use the database link(s) for the journal to get to the journal.
Place links in your D2L course sites to direct students to the Library’s home page, research guides, and to librarians
Links will encourage your students to find and use library resources and services and will help emphasize the importance of doing quality, academic research rather than relying only on material provided by web search engines. Encourage students to get research help by contacting librarians.
