Answer

The Subject Guides are pages curated by specialist librarians who find the most useful resources for different fields of study at UC. They are a good place to begin researching your topic. You can also use UCanFind.

Subject Guides include:

  • Articles: journal article databases give you access to over 40,000 academic journals. Read the description to select the best database for you.
  • Dictionaries & Encylopedias: links to subject specific dictionaries and encyclopedias
  • Web Resources: recommended sites

Choose a subject guide based on the topic of your assignment or research.

If you are studying through UC College or your topic really doesn't match any heading, try the General Reference Guide.
