Welcome to the research guide for LEC100: Discovering STEM at UW-Manitowoc. This guide will show you how to find and identify a research article in a peer reviewed journal. We will also review the process of using search@uw to find a book in the UW-Manitowoc library and then retrieving it from the library stacks.
