Your WOU librarians are here to help you learn how to do college-level research so that you can complete your class assignments. There is no question too simple or too complicated to come to us with. Here are some examples of the types of questions we commonly help students with:
–How do I find articles that are “peer-reviewed” for my research paper – and what does “peer-review” even mean?
–I only have the title for an article I’m supposed to find – can you help me?
–How do I cite this article/conference presentation/blog post using proper APA style?
–How do I find primary sources regarding German agriculture before and after the Industrial Revolution? We love helping with wild questions like this. (Seriously, we do.)
You can always ask directly for the available librarian at the Information Desk, or you can schedule an appointment with the librarian appropriate to your subject area. You can also consult the subject or class-specific research guides compiled by your librarians. Good luck with mid-terms!
