Research Support

Library personnel and library technologies and resources provide a breadth of support for your research. Some highlights include:

  • OneSearch, the search engine for materials owned by the library, both on the shelf and online. Also provides millions of full text article and citation records harvested from publishers, open access repositories, and a large percentage of the library's licensed databases. Click here to view a list of databases with content not findable or only partially findable in OneSearch.
  • Research Guides for subject-specific assistance with links to research resources, as well as research tips and tricks. For example, guidance on Copyright and Data Management as well as Citation Style Guides and Management Tools.
  • ScholarWorks UM's institutional repository that centralizes, preserves, and provides free, online access to the valuable research, creative scholarship, and unique resources produced and curated by UM faculty, students, and staff. ScholarWorks makes these resources easier to find, share, and use, both expanding the reach and increasing the impact of UM scholarship around the world. ScholarWorks accepts all discrete file types and can therefore accommodate traditional scholarship forms (documents, spreadsheets, presentations, etc.) as well as audio, video, image, and discipline-specific file types and formats.
  • Information Literacy – Core (InfoLit – Core) online videos, tutorials, and quizzes covering information literacy and critical thinking, as well as related topics and skills.
