Welcome! This guide will help you get started with your UWF-related research topic and proposal. You may navigate the pages to the left for getting started with your UWF topic, searching in our library resources, helping you with your citations, and evaluating web resources you may encounter.
If you need ANY help at all, you may contact Hillary Fox, Science Librarian, or Britt McGowan, Art Librarian. Our contact information is in the left column. We are happy to make one-on-one appointments with you!
It seems obvious, but it is always a good idea to think about what you are searching for before you go looking for it. Are you looking for information about a species in Northwest Florida? That could be on a conservation website or a in a book on native species. More in-depth information like the species' behaviors may be found in scholarly articles.
On the other hand, if you are looking for how UWF acquired its lands, you may have to dig in government and county records or in our University Archives. Or, consult the Pensacola News Journal archives.
In short, having a general idea of where information might be can save you considerable amounts of time.
