How to use this guide
Each tab (above) opens a page that either introduces a step in the general research process or suggests extra sources for a particular project for this class.
This guide will help you find:
- background (wisely);
- authoritative contextual sources;
- factual maps and statistics;
- information about topics of interest.
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!
