How to Find Resources for Your Next Paper

Written by Marty on . Posted in HOMEPAGE

For college students writing essays, it is often difficult to know where to get the resources you need. We all know, in general, that there is the internet and libraries as well. But where exactly can you go to get the articles and books that are definitively relevant to your studies? Is there a way to do this that does not involve several hours of searching and reading through to determine whether it relates or not? There are, in fact, a lot of easy ways you can find sources that connect to your research papers. Here are a few examples.

First, before going to the library, it can often be helpful to actually use a search engine to find books relating to your topic. This way, you can quickly get a feel for what books would make sense to read, rather than having to move slowly through entire sections of the library trying to find something. Google Books is often great assistance, especially because it has record of so many older books. What you might also not realize is that many public libraries now keep digital copies of books, which makes them easier to access for many people.

Second, universities tend to advertise sites they have paid for in terms of article access, but a free web directory can often help you find an even wider variety of free online articles. In order to find free articles, all you have to do is enter your search terms of interest and the free web directory will search through thousands of entries in order to find items that are relevant to your paper. A free web directory can be found just by googling, and for specific areas of study, there are often specific websites such as a free article directory for anthropology.
