Get Research Help

Learning how to locate information is a valuable skill, not only for your academic career, but for your life. When you break down the research process into manageable steps, you will have the tools you need to inform yourself on any topic or issue.

Our Getting Started Libguide will help you start this process, and our other LibGuides will guide you to recommended sources for specific classes and subject areas.

Contact a librarian if you need assistance – we’re always glad to help!

Here are some quick hints:

Magazine and Journal Articles:

  • The Mott Library offers online databases with articles from a wide variety of magazines, journals and newspapers.
  • Our Online_Resources page has links to the most popular databases. For more specialized research, visit our A - Z Databases LibGuide and select from over 70 different databases with descriptions. If you don’t know which ones to use, check our other LibGuides to find out which databases are recommended for your classes, or ask a librarian.
  • To access online library resources, sign in with your MCC credentials.
