Research Tips: 3-point Checklist

Written by Harold Henkel, Assistant Librarian

Welcome to all new and returning students. This space will be home to a regular feature with quick tips for improving the quality of your research.

Let’s start with a 3-Point Library Checklist for a Successful Academic Year:

  • Visit the Library faculty page to learn your school’s Library liaison. The Library liaisons are subject specialists in their school’s discipline and can help you with some of the thorniest research problems. Also visit the Reference Services page for hours and links for contacting the Reference Desk. We offer information and research help in person and via telephone, email, and instant messaging
  • Sign up for a RefWorks account and take the interactive tutorial. RefWorks is a powerful research tool that allows you to import references from the Library’s databases, manage your citations, and format your bibliography in seconds. Spending a little time with RefWorks now will save you time and stress later when you are finishing your papers.
  • Sign up for an Interlibrary Loan account. Local students can use their Interlibrary Loan accounts to request books and articles not available from Regent University Library. Distance students use Interlibrary Loan to request books and articles from the University Library as well as articles not available from Regent. For speed, articles are usually delivered by email in PDF.

    Thanks for this helpful summary. I am just now getting back into the LDSL saddle to finish do my project in Strategic Leadership, and plan to utilize the library following your tips.
