It can be overwhelming to start a new research project or navigate your way through the library's collection of resources. The library offers one-on-one or group research assistance. Help topics include:
- Defining a research topic
- Learning to use databases
- Conducting a search for research articles
- Performing a detailed search for a systematic review
- Working with citations
- Finding publication information
The Library has created guides for each of the TUN programs. These subject guides provide information and links to resources and services specific to a particular program. Examples of TUN program subject guides include:
If you need an article or book (though not textbooks) that the library does not have access to, you can request the title free-of-charge through interlibrary loan (ILL). The request form for an ILL is located on the Interlibrary Loan Request on the library homepage.
- Articles: Journal article requests are typically completed within a couple of days, though be aware the processing times can vary so plan ahead if you need an ILL article. They are usually sent to you in PDF format through email.
- Books: The library can request a book chapter--though not class texts--through interlibrary loan.
