How to Navigate This Guide


This guide is designed to provide easy access to an array of resources such as databases and web sites that will provide you with timely and pertinent articles, statistics and opinions on topics that you will be researching.

The home page of this guide provides information about Reference desk hours and the many methods of contacting a Reference librarian in addition to a link to my appointment calendar.

Contact information for the Center for Writing and Academic Achievement is also provided. The Center offers assistance in the writing process, structuring an argument, and grammar.

The LibGuide is arranged by the type of speech you will be presenting, but the resources are not limited to that particular assignment.

The Community Engagement Partnership page lists the organizations web site, the contact person and their email/phone number.  

To enhance your presentations, images and videos are available from the links provided in this LibGuide

A citation guide to MLA 8th is included in the guide.
