Begin Your Research is a set of brief tutorials with basic information for conducting library research. It explains

how to

  • select a topic
  • search effectively
  • locate articles and books in the library and on the web
  • evaluate the suitability of sources your find
  • document your sources to avoid plagiarism and participate in the scholarly conversation

How To Videos

The following short videos will show you how to accomplish some basic research tasks.

  • Database: Academic Search Elite
    This tutorial shows you how to do a basic search in Academic Search Elite.
  • Interlibrary Loan
    This video shows how to use our interlibrary loan service, which is free. Use it to borrow books or to get copies of articles that our library doesn't have. Sometimes, you can borrow videos or CDs, too. All you have to do is supply the information about what you want to borrow; we do the rest. Items usually come in about a week.
  • Video Tutorials
    Here is a link to all of our short how-to videos for library research. Some were created by librarians at Humboldt State; some come from other places.
