Access to Success: Getting Help with Research

Uploaded by YorkUniversity on 10.09.2012

You've got an essay to complete next week,
you need to find academic books and scholarly journals.
Can you get everything online?
You've found lots of information about your topic,
but have you searched in the best places?
You're in the middle of your assignment
and you're not sure how to cite a newspaper.
Where can you go for assistance?
You need...
Research help...
At York Libraries!

These services will give you a huge head start.
They're easy-to-use, convenient, and available now.
They're located in the Steacie, Bronfman and Scott libraries
at the Keele Campus, and Frost Library at the Glendon Campus.
The research librarians you'll be chatting with are experts
at finding and using information.
Their role is to help you find the best information
for your topic, but also to help you learn
about the best strategies for doing research.
All right.
So to go to the different libraries,
we're going to have to split up now.
