Research is not linear

See the Library's Introduction to Research web page for more tips and strategies.

Don't pay for stuff!

Never pay for an article or book or access to resources.

In most cases (except for textbooks), the Cornell Library has online journals, newspapers, magazines, ebooks and print books, or can get them for you at no charge to you!

Passkey can help you find it at Cornell, or Ask a Librarian.
