It’s That Time Of Year When Research is on Your Mind

or it probably should be on your mind. Remember the variety of resources the library has for you. When you need journal articles and go to EBSCOhost, go down the list of databases to see if we have one on your subject area. Using a subject area database can reduce the time it takes to find just the right source.
