Welcome! This guide has sources and strategies for locating resources for your research assignment. Please reach out to your librarian if you have any questions!
Try starting with an encyclopedia, bibliography, or background source to get ideas on topics, search terms, and other sources.
Do you need a resource that Wellesley does not have or that is currently checked out? Have you hit a "pay wall" while looking for the full text of an article or book chapter ? Place an ILL request and we'll try to get it for you!
Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the sharing of library materials worldwide. We find and borrow the resources you need that Wellesley does not have and lend our materials as well. Loan requests (books, dvd/cds, scores) will be sent to our library for you to pick up and articles and book chapters are sent to your ILL account as pdfs. Check out the ILL Research Guide for more information!
