Research Overview

Need to brush up on your research skills? New to university-level research? Not sure how to navigate UK Libraries' resources?

Consider enrolling in Online Information Literacy, a free, self-paced course in Canvas which was co-developed by your librarian. The course takes around 40 minutes to complete.

Become a Library Power User

All students in the College have access to a variety of resources, and below are a few basic things to get you started.
 

Make sure you can access all your accounts.

  • Your InfoKat account: find due dates, renew books, see any fines, track your requests, save records and searches. Learn more about your borrowing privileges.
  • Your linkblue account: get off-campus access to databases, articles, e-books, and more.
  • Your ILLiad account (uses your linkblue credentials): place orders, renew loans, access articles. Learn more about Interlibrary Loan.
  • It's a great idea to create your own accounts in EBSCOhost, JSTOR, Web of Science Core Collection, and other resources to save searches, records, make lists, etc.

You can get in-depth research help.

Know that you can request library materials from around the world.

  • You have access to items in our campus libraries, storage, or from other libraries which you can request to pick up at any campus library.
  • You can request access to items that UK Libraries doesn't own via your ILLiad account.

You can use rooms in the library for your work.

If you have any questions, please ask your librarian! We're here to help you.
