W 101: From Hula-Hoops to Hoverboards

Where to Start with Your Research


We're glad you're here. You've made the first step in delving into research at Denison.

What do you need to know?

First thing is that you will need to plan ahead. Research can take time, including building in time for getting materials. There are many books and articles available directly within the library or online through the library, but some things will need to be requested. Make sure you build in time for getting books from other libraries through CONSORT or OhioLINK. It will take about 3 days to get them delivered to you. You will get an email when they arrive at our circulation desk for pickup.
