Why Use Research Guides?

Research for Class Assignments

Has an instructor asked you to use research sources for a class assignment (such as an essay or presentation)? Research for college-level assignments requires more than just quickly finding something on a website. You will need quality sources from known, reliable authors or organizations that provide accurate and often timely information on specific topics. It's a lot to think about! Instead of trying to figure out which websites from Google might offer acceptable sources, try using a library resource!

You can start your research by clicking on a link in the Library Resources box or use one of the Research Guides made by Brookhaven librarians. Research Guides focus on specific subjects or sources to help make your research easier.

Use links in the Research Guides box to get started!
