Welcome to the Library

Hello Everyone,

This guide brings together the library resources that you will need to complete your informative podcast assignment. If you have any questions for me while you are working on this assignment, please contact the library. It's our job to help you! :) You can sign up for a research consultation with a librarian. You can also chat with a librarian by using the chat box on this page or in the library catalog and databases. 

Katie Ediger, Truman College Library Department Chair   

Starting Your Research

When looking at the Library Catalog, try to answer the following questions:

  1. How many results do you get on the "online" tab?
  2. What kind of sources?
  3. How can you refine the results?
  4. How would you save one of these sources?
  5. How would you cite one of the sources?
