Welcome to Elihu Burritt Library's Students' Guide to Library Research. This guide was created by members of the Reference and Instruction department to help CCSU's students start out with college-level research. Use the navigation along the left to work through the different sections.
Please keep in mind that you might view these sections "out of order," depending upon the kind of research help you need at any given time during a research project. For instance, you might choose to learn how to format a citation while you are gathering sources so that you can build your bibliography as you conduct your research (a very good habit to practice!).
We have included a link to CCSU's Academic Integrity policy for our CCSU students. Please don't hesitate to suggest other links or additional resources that you think would be helpful!
In order to access databases and articles from off campus, you must be logged into your library account. View our Technical Support and Off Campus Access Guide for instructions on how to login to gain off campus access.
