Library Research Tutorial

Introduction

Welcome to the UCF Libraries' Research Tutorial. This tutorial will show you:

  • How to begin your research
  • How to search the UCF Libraries' Catalog to find books and other items the UCF Libraries owns
  • How to search the UCF Libraries' Articles & Databases to find magazine, newspaper, and journal articles
  • How to evaluate the information you have found
  • How to use the information you have found

This tutorial is important because at the university level you need to know how to do research that goes beyond simply searching Google or Wikipedia. While those tools have their place they are not the best for performing high quality academic research. To start click the "Next Section" button below.

This tutorial is also available in a video format here.

Note: This tutorial makes heavy use of Flash video so make sure you have the latest version of Flash installed on your computer. If you encounter any problems with the tutorial please e-mail Jason Martin.
