Research Help

  • Email Gina, your course librarian, if you run into issues finding articles and books. Her email address is
  • Schedule a research consult – get live help from Gina, tailored to your chosen topic(s).
    • In some cases, Gina may refer you to another subject specialist librarian. Email her for a referral.
  • Use the Ask A Librarian Chat Service, available until 9 pm, Sunday-Thursday. (This option is good for help after 5 pm.)

Library Catalog

The library catalog is a great way to start a search. You can limit to the catalog to search for books and ebooks, or you can expand to the Everything search option to include articles. You'll start with a book/ebook search in class on February 29 at the PCL.

Library Research Guides by Subject

Given that your jump-start kits will require consulting journals and databases from a wide range of disciplines, you'll need to get familiar with other library guides.

Subject specialist librarians have created guides for most disciplines represented at UT. Below is a selection relevant to your topics, but if you can't find what you need, refer to the Guides by Subject page, or contact Gina for referrals and additional help.

What is a Library Database?

Your instructor or subject librarian may throw around the term "library database" a lot, but what exactly do they mean? This video from RMIT University in Australia explains the term and how you can use databases for research. (Plus, the narrator has a great accent!)
