Your One-Stop Shopping Link to Success!

Have you gotten to the library website and not known where to go next for information you need to do research for an assignment? We have a handy one-stop shopping page for you: the Library’s Research Guides page.


Here you will find a list of academic departments so you can easily find the guides that UCSC librarians have created to help you know what resources—books, article databases, primary sources, background information, and web sources—are best for the subject area of your assignment or class. You will also find course guides created for specific classes at the professor’s request (check back each quarter to see if your class has one).


And there are lots of how-to guides covering a variety of “Special Topics” from citing sources, accessing affordable textbooks, using government sources, navigating statistics, to writing annotated bibliographies and literature reviews—and so much more!


Bookmark it now—so you’ll always know where to find it. The online library is always open. And tell your friends too!
