This guide provides sociology students information and strategies for accessing print and online sources in order to effectively research a topic of choice related to a psychology course. Ideally, this guide is used as a companion to the in-person library orientation taught by a library faculty member.
Guide users come to a writing task with a wide range of library research experience. For some, this is your first research paper at Citrus, this may even be your first college class. For others the research process may be familiar but our library resources and search strategies may be new to you. For those repeating this course, keep an eye out for new resources and tips.
