Getting Started

Welcome to this Library guide for finding information in the sciences.  It is intended to serve as a starting point for your electronic and print research in these subject areas.  

As you explore this page and the tabs above, you will find tools and resources to help you locate:

  • Background Information in specialized dictionaries and encyclopedias
  • Articles and Books available at GU and beyond

You won't find everything you need here.  As always, please feel free to stop by the Reference Office or contact a Librarian directly for help with your research.

I welcome your feedback on this guide.  If you like it or find a problem with it, please let me know.
