Where do I start my research?

Just starting your research and not sure where to begin? Check out this Beginning Research LibGuide, which
offers information on databases, interlibrary loans, plagiarism, citation and other online resources. 

A database is a collection of information on a website organized so you can conduct a search (by keyword, title, author, etc). The UML Library provides free access to a multitude of databases for students which have sources that include journal articles, books, conference papers, maps, government reports, etc.

It's a good place to start to look for articles, books, etc. Especially peer-reviewed articles from academic journals (for example, Andean Geology or Lithos). To clarify, a database can be used to search for journals, which contain peer-reviewed articles, vital to references when writing a thesis or doing research.


Some databases provide full-text and some don't.  If the database you're searching doesn't include full-text, use: 

Chemistry Databases

The main search box on the UML Library Home Page is the best place to start when exploring a topic.
