The Internet has brought a vast array of information to your desktop. The challenge for students is to identify the relevant sources, get to them easily, and critically evaluate their content. Some of the following websites are licensed for UC users only, others are open to all. Those that are licensed will not turn up in a Google search.
This guide will lead you to resources that can help you find material for your assignments. Remember that you can always ask a reference librarian for help.
These resources and the information in the Literature Review Tips, Guidelines and Resources page will help you find material you can use for your research.
Bibliographic management programs such as EndNote or Zotero help you organize your research. The following guides have more information about them.
