UCWR: Choose a Search Tool

Use this guide to complete your assignments for UCWR 110

Introduction

Choosing an appropriate search tool often depends on the kind of information you need. 

If you're looking for peer-reviewed journal articles, the catalog or Academic Search Complete are great starting points. 

If you're looking for background information, maybe start with Google to get more information about your topic or find current news. You can also explore online encyclopedias available through the Loyola University Libraries website. 

Whatever search tool you choose, don't forget that you can Ask a Librarian for assistance in finding exactly what you need.
