Why Use a Library?

College-level research involves using a variety of resources to find information that is reliable and relevant to the topic. Most of the research you will do in college involves using academic or scholarly resources available from your campus library. Many of these materials - including encyclopedias, articles, book chapters, and videos - are available online from the library's website.

It is important to know that there is a difference between casual, everyday research using the "free" Web or reading the local paper, and more scholarly research using library resources. This video from Hartness Library System explains.
