UK Libraries has a huge number of resources, and it can be hard to know how to get started. Be sure to look at our Research Guides to see if there is a Subject or Course Guide that will help you. These guides can point you to the best resources for your research area or course assignment. For example, check out these guides for WRD 110 and CIS 110.
Were you asked by your instructor to find Scholarly Articles? You can find those in a number of databases and journals, but you might want to start with Academic Search Complete, which is a good general academic database.
You can search via the link above or in the box below. It's a good idea to check the box to limit to Peer Reviewed journal articles if you were asked to find peer reviewed/scholarly articles.
Introduction to UK Libraries is an interactive tutorial highlighting important resources and services such as research guides, printing, and more!
