Welcome to the SCPS Research Guide!

This guide will introduce you to to some of the resources that are available to you. In addition to this guide, it is highly recommended to look at the additional subject-specific Research Guides. Each guide contains various resources and tools that have been created to help you research based off of your subject of study or your research topic. If at any point you are not sure where to find specific information, you can always contact me or use our Ask a Librarian.
