Ouachita Stories


Tap into the library’s top research tools

November 30, 2018 - Margaret Reed

Writing a research paper or essay? Preparing for a presentation? Instead of spending hours paging through numerous, random search engine results, drop by the library. In a matter of minutes, a librarian can show you how to navigate our top research tools and find exactly what you need.

  • Books – Search the library catalog to find hundreds of thousands of books at both Ouachita and Henderson.
  • Articles – Search Ebsco, JSTOR and ProQuest for articles in journals, magazines and newspapers.
  • Government Resources – Find something on nearly everything at USA.gov, the U.S. government’s portal to a wide range of useful consumer and trustworthy academic information.

These and many other research tools are on the library’s web site and LibGuides.

Questions? Drop by the library or contact a librarian. We look forward to assisting you!
