Exploring a Topic

The best way to begin your research is to explore the many possible facets of a topic. Encyclopedias are a great resource to do this. Browse the following resources to explore your research topic.

Requesting articles or books from other libraries

If you find a reference to a book or article that isn't available in Doane's library, we can get a copy for your use using a process called Interlibrary Loan. You can ask us online or in person to get materials for your use.
