Welcome to my Research Guide! In this guide I discuss everything that I would normally cover in an Information Literacy Session. In it I have included important tips and techniques to assist you with whatever research you plan to conduct. I find research exciting because you never know what you will find! I hope you eventually will feel the same way. If you have any questions or comments about this Guide please email me at email@example.com. Thanks!

Maybe you've found information about the perfect article in one of the databases but there's no full text. Or you've found the perfect book in the catalog but it's checked out or at the Newtown campus. You can request a copy of the book or article by submitting an Interlibrary Loan request. If the book's at Newtown we'll have it sent to LBC or UBC for you, or we'll try to find another library that has the book or article and send it to you. Be aware though, that if we need to get it from another library the process can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks so this isn't something you can do at the last minute.
Below are three very useful links that may help you when it comes to citing your sources. The first two are sample citation guides provided by the College. The third link is a handy web based guide provided by Purdue University which I turn to whenever I have a question about citing a source.
