One of the great things about the digital age is that we have instant access to a huge range of information. But, one of the frustrating things about the digital age is that we have instant access to a huge range of information – how can you find what you really need when you get over a million hits on a Google or Yahoo search? Finding an authoritative source can be like finding a needle in a haystack – and there are so many haystacks!

This is why the library website has 18 Subject Guides organized by subject majors to help with just this problem. There is also a guide to help searchers find free collections of eBooks, and another for newspapers and other news outlets. Simply follow the link for your subject, and you’ll find research guides with links to books, articles, websites, professional organizations, reference materials, and other resources that deal specifically with that particular subject. In addition to subjects for which you’d expect to find a research guide such as criminal justice, history, psychology, nursing, etc. there is also a guide for biographical sources and another for locating statistics in all subject areas.

Still having trouble finding what you need? You can email us by using the link in the right sidebar of this blog or from any library Website page; or simply send an e-mail to library@worcester.edu.
