Welcome

Welcome to the Interdisciplinary Studies guide!

 

Here is where you will find resources to help with research in field of study

 

Another way to find books & everything else - Quick Search

Quick Search will look for books, journal and magazine and newspaper articles and even materials from Special Collections. Searches will return many hits, sometimes too many.

A few tips for using Quick Search

  • Use the "Refine your search" tabs on the left hand side of the page
  • These tabs will allow you to limit by books, journal articles or to exclude newspaper articles
  • You can also limit to scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles
  • Also, notice in the results list, each entry has two small icons in the right hand corner
  • The icon with a box and a plus sign allows you to format and email the citiation
