Welcome

Greetings!  Your Course Shell provides you with several examples of possible assignments.  This LibGuide will address some of those while introducing resources to assist you with your research. These will fall in four broad categories.

Background Sources
These are resources to help you develop a basic understanding of a topic and perhaps help you locate resources for your Project.  These are typically online encyclopedias and dictionaries which are a useful starting point and helpful for background information.  These resources typically should not appear in your final draft.

Library Databases
There are online reference and periodical resources to which DeVry University subscribes.  You may be familiar with some of these while others may be new to you.

Books
All of the Library's books are eBooks accessible online

Open Access
There are a growing number of online journals which are usually free to the reader.  They are self-archiving and sometimes free of  copyright and licensing restrictions (you still must cite them if you use them).  Their costs are supported by publication fees paid by authors or are externally subsidized.  The quality of open access publications varies considerably.  Some are quite reputable while others are fronts for special interest groups.
