A guide to assist students in conducting research using the wide variety of information sources available to them.

Subject Guides

When you're starting your research, it may be helpful to check the Libraries' Subject Guides. These guides contain helpful research tips and lists of resources compiled by librarians who specialize in various subject areas. There are also special guides for some courses as well as general research issues (e.g., citing sources) and specific types of sources (e.g., maps, newspapers, e-books, etc.).

Subject guides are available at: http://researchguides.library.syr.edu/homepage

Or click on "Subject Guides" under "Find" from the Libraries home page (http://library.syr.edu). (See images below.)
