Hello students! Welcome to your COMP II library guide. This was designed especially for you by Margaret the librarian. If you watch the tutorials and videos before you start your research, your assignment won't seem as intimidating.
Look at the boxes around this video. To your left is general information on how to use the library's website and catalog to find books. There's also information about how to cite your sources in MLA format. Underneath this box you'll see tutorials and links for the databases where you will find current articles on your topics. There is also information about how to log in from home. You do not have to be on campus to research journal articles!
To your right you'll see some options for getting additional help. That's Margaret in the black and white photo, and her contact information is underneath. She'll be happy to help you in person, by phone, or by email if you get stuck in your research process. Underneath Margaret's profile box is an Instant Message widget. You can IM a librarian to get research help anytime the libraries are open. There are also instructions on how to text your question to a librarian.
Please take advantage of these resources. We want you to write the best research paper possible for Professor Shakely!
