Welcome to the Guide for PLS 399
This guide should give you some very basic info about how to get started using the tools you need. To get started using this guide, click on the tabs. The tabs will help you search databases to find articles, search for books relevant to your area of study, get help with your citations and find background information for your research topic.
This guide is just a starting point, however. Please do explore the Library website on your own, and make sure to ask me questions if you need help. I'm happy to talk to you online, by phone, or even in person if you'd like. If you can't reach me, you can also ask ANY other librarian for help. Email, IM, phone, or in person help is available.
I am not the only librarian available to help! If you are anywhere near the downtown or Schaumburg campuses, stop by the library. Both are staffed with many trained, friendly librarians who can help with all kinds of research questions. You can also call the Downtown or Schaumburg Reference Desk to get help. The number downtown is 312-341-3644 (downtown hours). The number in Schaumburg is 847-619-7980 (Schaumburg hours).
