A guide to library research

Welcome to Kroch Asia

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.

About this guide

This is a guide to help with library research at Cornell. Use the blue tabs above to navigate through this guide.

Each tab relates to a step in the library research process and contains information about databases, search strategies, etc.

Use ALL the tools!

USE ALL THE TOOLS!

The best research uses everything, all the tools, and the best tool for the task.

But not all tools are equal. Google and Wikipedia have their uses, but when it comes to scholarly research, rely on restricted tools/resources which are superior, have more content, and are free to Cornellians.
