The Library Homepage

Homepage Tabs

  • OCtopus: searches almost every database (collection of resources) the library has and gives you a list of results sorted by relevance. This is always a good place to start your search
  • Books & Media: searches the catalogue (print books and physical items). This is a good place to search if you want/need a real book
  • Articles and Databases: a list of databases that you can narrow down by subject or by what kind of resource (newspapers, academic journals, videos, etc.) you need. Many of these are searched for you in OCtopus, but sometimes it is better to search them individually.
  • Research & Subject Guides: a list of guides that are designed to help you with specific subjects or courses, just like this one
  • Citation Guides: help for references and citing in different styles, such as MLA
