How do I access information on research methods and procedures?
To find resources on research methods and procedures, it's a good idea to begin by taking a look at the "Library Orientation" subject guide. This guide provides instruction on how to access the different resources available on the LRD website. You can find this guide here: http://udc.libguides.com/libraryorientation
The specific area you’re looking for research methods and procedures in will help determine where you search and the keywords you use in your search. If for example you’re looking for information on how to write research papers and conducting academic research, then you might search the catalog for “Writing and college research papers.” By searching the catalog you’ll find both print an ebooks on that topic.
