Finding Sources
The library offers a plethora of resources ranging from articles, newspapers, books, ebooks, videos, and more. Below are a few tips for finding resources:

  1. Use the Compass Search tool on the Library homepage. Use this research guide to learn more about how to limit your results to more easily find sources that fit your research topic.
  2. Google Scholar uses the Google search interface but can lead you to full text articles within the University of Denver's collection. Use this research guide to learn more about searching with Google Scholar.
  3. Find a relevant research guide for your academic discipline or the type of research you're conducting (literature reviews, annotated bibliographies, grant searches, etc.). Research guides will also help suggest a targeted list of databases and resources you could consider in your research process.
  4. Use a database specific to your research topic. As you progress in your studies and your research, you'll discover databases that focus on certain subjects or types of sources to help limit your results and access more specific search tools.
