  •  Look in the subtabs for tips on beginning your research and creating your bibliography.  On the left sidebar of this page, find links to other library guides like the Bibliographic and Footnote Style Guide for help on different bibliography and citation styles, and the LibX at NYU toolbar for your computer's Firefox or Internet Explorer web browser, a nice research retrieval tool that can take books and articles you find while surfing the web and obtain them through NYU Library's resource network.
  • See A Research Walkthrough for a methodical research process based on Browsing by Subject Heading in BobCat Standard to focus your research question and narrow the results of your search.  While the walkthrough is based on the subject of emigration and immigration, it includes information on Other Common Topics which may help you adjust the walkthrough based on this example to your unique question or topic.  Also see The Research Process for a good diagram of the cyclical research process and advice on not getting discouraged.
  • See the Books tab for help on searching for books in BobCat (NYU's online library catalog), how to find books which are not available at NYU through Interlibrary Loan, and a guide to Subject Searching in BobCat to help narrow the subjects of your research.
