This guide is intended to help Physical Science students learn about the Library's resources for literary research. The guide includes sections on the Library catalog, major electronic resources for literary study, and practical strategies for research and writing with Library resources.

This lib-guide also aims to help you, the user, understand how to better use your library. We have highlighted several different services that the library offers in order to give customers an overview of services and resources they may not be aware of or may not feel comfortable using. As technology changes, libraries must change as well. Our library aims to be at the forefront of providing relevant information, tools, services, and programs for our users. Please take a moment to browse any of the offerings that are of interest to you, and of course, don't hesitate to ask a librarian if you would like further assistance with any of our services or resources. Thanks for visiting our lib-guide!

Use the contents of this guide to navigate this research guide. If you have questions or need any help, please contact Mr. Lewis, the Physical Science Liaison Librarian, by email at or by phone at 376-5917.
