Research

Young Library provides research materials in both print and electronic formats. All students, faculty, and staff have 24/7 access to electronic research materials wherever an internet connection is available. Professional full-time staff members are available in the library 74 hours a week for one-on-one consultation. Library staff can be contacted in person, by phone, or by e-mail.

To Begin Your Research

  1. Identify and define your topic
  2. Gather background information and develop search terms
  3. Locate print and electronic resources (books, streaming video, journal articles) in Young Library using KCU’s Online Catalog.  Use other catalogs – WorldCat – to locate off site materials available through Inter-library Loan.
  4. Search journal databases for electronic and full-text articles – Off-Campus Username and Password
  5. Find additional internet resources. Consider government websites, academic sites, and scholarly sites.
  6. Evaluate all information.  Consider author information/ perspective, How is the article useful to answering your research question?
  7. Maintain citation information on all resources used
