The Research Process: Step-by-Step

This guide walks you through the steps of the research process

GIL-Find Quick Guide

GIL-Find: Browse search

The Browse search allows you to browse library material (local material only) in order to find information of relevance quickly. You can browse material by author, title, and subject. In the results, you can click an underlined entry to see its associated records. It is also possible to browse by call number, which returns a list of associated records in brief format. Clicking a title displays its full record.

GIL-Find: Course Reserves

Course Reserves are items placed on limited access checkout to ensure that students and faculty will have timely access to course-related materials and library resources.  They can be either electronic or physical items.  Physical items are available at the library Circulation Desk, and circulation periods for print reserves are determined by the course instructor. Information about what items an instructor has place on reserve is available through GIL, the Library's catalog under Course Reserves.  Additional information is available HERE.
