Where should you look?

In most STEM fields, and in most of the quantitative social sciences, the format of articles (or conference papers, especially in computer science) is the most important way to find scholarly information about a research topic.

I have highlighted a few books and article databases of possible interest below. There may be other places besides these that are better for you. If you need help, visit the "Getting reference assistance" tab to find support.
