Hi Students! I created this LibGuide (or research guide) to help you with your creative writing for your course. I embedded some text and widgets on this front page that should help you with any library research you may want to do. We have many databases, ebooks, videos and other online materials that you will find helpful, but if you are on campus we encourage you to visit the Library for a wide selection of print books, magazines, newspapers and face-to-face help. Here's a run-down of the information on this page:
There is a library catalog widget in the left column with which you can look up all of the library materials I mentioned besides journal and magazine articles. If this widget doesn't give you enough control over your search, you may want to try the Power Search version. Underneath that widget is a box with information about citing your sources properly in MLA style just in case you have to do that.
Most of this middle column is devoted to databases. We subscribe to many, and they will bring you scholarly and popular articles on almost any topic. I have included tutorials for two of our favorites beneath this box. We have many more tutorials here. Find the list of databases here. If you are working off-campus, you will be asked for a password. this is the same one you use for almost everything at Bucks, and you can find troubleshooting information at the bottom of that list of databases page.
If you have any questions about this library stuff, please contact me using the information in the right column, or, ask a question of our team of librarians through the chat window underneath my contact box any hour that the physical library is open.
But wait, there's more! Look above for the dark blue tabs. There is one labelled "Self-Publishing" that you might find helpful if you are thinking of creating an ebook...
