MAN Tips and Tricks for Library Research: Home


Welcome to the library guide that will give you tips and tricks for a successful research experience.  

Using the library for your academic work is good sense.  This is how to find the best quality resources available to you. And a research study has shown that checking out books and using library databases and electronic journals is "significantly and positively associated with students' academic achievement." (Soria, Fransen, & Nackerud, 2013, p. 160).  

You will learn tips about embarking on the library research process and tricks that show you ways to save time in the process.  As always, see your friendly librarian for help whenever you need it.
