Research 101 serves as an introduction to research skills for new students, a refresher for curent or returning students and is a tool that can help students use library resources more efficiently. A series of tutorials cover things like how to select topics, develop research questions, search for information, evaluate sources that you may want to use, and more.
Research Help is also available, with links to research and assignment help, choosing and evaluating sources, and information on copyright and plagiarism (under the section "Information For Students" at the top of the page).
