Need help with in-text citations or more complicated citations?  Use the OWL!  It's super easy, and totally simple. This is also a really good time to make an appointment with a writing tutor to make sure your paper is totally perfect and all your citations are good to go.

 

Using Google can be really helpful when you're doing research, especially if you use these quick tips!

1. Change the "Domain"

  • Looking for Government information?  Use .gov in your search
    • If you search "Statistics on the economy" site:gov, you'll find government sites focusing on the economy, such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

  • Looking for Education resources?  Use .edu in your search
    • If you search "statistics on the economy" site:edu, you'll find academic sites focusing on the economy, such as articles from colleges and universities.
  • Looking for Non-Profit research?  Use .org in your search
    • If you search "statistics on the economy" site:org, you'll find non-profit sites focusing on the economy, such as the United Nations Statistics division.

​2. Put your search in "Quotes"

  • If you're searching for more than one word, use quotes to search as a phrase.
    • ​EX:  "Student Loans"

3. Google Scholar

  • A Google Scholar search will bring you lots of academic results, and it is a great place to start.  
    • If you can't read the articles online, let us know and we'll find the Full Text for you!
