This tutorial is a starter kit for making the library your own. It covers the basics in brief: how to approach a research assignment, how to find books, articles, and other kinds of sources, how to make choices among the sources you find, and where you can get help along the way.
This information is also available in human form at the reference desk. You can always sit down and consult with a librarian about your project, no matter where you are in the process or how vague or specific your questions might be.
