Where do I start my research?

Just starting your research and not sure where to begin? This Beginning Research LibGuide, 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 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.
