How to Use the Research Guides

Research Guides are online tools developed by Westminster University librarians to help you find research resources for specific academic disciplines. Need to find a journal article, a book, or data? View the guide for your subject area in order to connect to databases that will help you track down scholarship and information in that field. Each guide also includes a page about citing sources and the contact information for a librarian who can help with your research.

Faculty: Contact your subject’s liaison librarian to suggest edits to a research guide.

Citation Resources
