What is a research guide?
Research (or subject) guides are resources created by librarians to highlight particular information and sources that may be particularly useful when researching a particular topic. Included are suggested books (both physical and digital), the most useful databases to search for articles, and suggested keywords to help you in your search(es). They provide a good starting point, especially if it's an unfamiliar subject.

It is also recommended that you check the Related Guides that are listed on the Starting Points page; these are subjects that have considerable overlap in concepts and/or materials and are worth checking out.
The librarians at WNC have compiled these research guides listing the best location tools for finding databases, articles, books, and videos on that topic.
