Library research is a major college-level ability. Librarians are actually Library Scientists. No one should expect underclassmen to know how to use the library on their own. After all, librarians are faculty and faculty teach!
Our purpose here is to guide you and teach you to be a professional-level researcher so that, when you graduate, you have the competitive edge to think about research scientifically.

This is a research guide created specifically for English Composition Classes. Librarians create research guides for a variety of disciplines and research-related topics. (If you'd like to take a look, explore them here!)
This guide is meant to serve as an introduction to the UWF Libraries and issues in research.
Your instructor may require you to take the Library Orientation tutorials online (with quiz) for a grade. These tutorials and the link to the quiz are found in the next tab. Even if the instructor does not require them, you may find them useful.
Did you know all freshmen have their very own librarian?
The Personal Librarian Program matches freshmen to a librarian by last name for their first year. That means you have a personal guide and helper for all things library and research. Watch for emails from him/her and email them back to ask questions or set up an appointment for a research consultation.

Not a freshman? No problem! We have librarians assigned for each major, too!
