With access to over 500 databases, it can be a daunting task to figure out where to turn first when researching a topic. That’s why SMU library liaisons create Research Guides. These guides should be the first place you turn to when looking for a quick path to the best resources for most any program offered, such as Electrical Engineering, Biology or Geology. Besides pointing you to databases, Research Guides highlight great web sites, and ebook collections. We also have guides on on “how to” topics such as creating citations, developing better search strategies and sending a request to Interlibrary Loan.
