I don't know where to start my research!

The library has so many resources available that it can sometimes be overwhelming and knowing where to start can be difficult.

To help you decide which resources will best suit your needs, subject librarians preselected resources and created subject specific research guides.  They are guides to resources pertinent to a particular subject or research topic. These can include lists of print and electronic (both free and restricted) resources.  You do not need to log in to use the guides, however some of the databases may require you to log in with a BroncoNet ID and password if you are off campus.

Please visit the list of available subject guides:

We also have several class guides.  These guides are similar to the subject guides.  They differ in that they are tailored to a specific class.  Not all classes have a guide.  You can check here:
