Getting Started

Research assignments are most effectively completed by breaking the process into steps. 

Select a topic or break the assigned topic into a manageable scope 

Identify the key concepts pertaining to your research topic 

Select databases from the Subject Research Guides to locate articles and search them using your key concepts 

Keep track of citations from databases and the catalog by using a citation manager, such as Refworks (see Refworks tutorial for more information)

Books and articles not owned by UTA may be obtained from other libraries by using the Interlibrary Loan service. This is free and items will be delivered electronically to you or mailed to the Central Library for pick-up.
