Even a small library, like the one at Doane University, contains a lot of information on topics in the field of counseling. You just need to figure out how to get to it! This guide was created to take a little of the mystery out of using the library's resources as you begin to do research in this field.
A good summary article from a reference book like an encyclopedia can get you started in the right direction. It also might help you narrow the focus of your topic.

The Doane Library provides online ebooks on counseling like the ones shown below. Find out what other reference books we have by searching the library's catalog.
