Whether your assignment is for a written paper, a speech, a demonstration or presentation, a film or a digital media production, there is an easy way to find a suitable topic, and to get the information you need. The process outlined in this guide will help you. Follow the tabs across the top to develop your knowledge and understanding of the issues and problems relevant to your topic, and you will be able to confidently write or speak about it in your final product. Each tab describes a phase in the research process:
If you are off campus or using a wireless device while on campus, you may be prompted to login to get into the database. This is what you will see:
Remote login is required to prove that you are a student at College of the Redwoods, because these library databases are not free, open website available to anyone. Library resources are valuable and often expensive, because the information provided is reliable, credible, and based on a lot of work by many people. The library pays for student, faculty, and staff access.
You can get help with your research, even when you can't come to campus!
Use the icon above to contact the library by chat or email.
If chat is not available at the moment, you'll be redirected to our "Ask-a-Librarian" form, and a librarian will respond as quickly as possible. During Summer, please allow at least 48 hours for responses to emails!
