This guide is for students enrolled in Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 First Year Seminar courses.

Where should I start my search?

Before you can find a source for your assignment, you'll need to decide where you are going to look. Everyone knows about Google, but did you know there are many other online search tools? The duPont-Ball Library subscribes to over 250 databases. Each database has a unique collection of information, often with a specific type of content or subject area. Browse our list to select the best one for your needs. If you're not sure, OneSearch is a good starting point.
