Dean's Book Course

Welcome to the library course guide page for the Dean's Book Course

This page is designed to assist you in your library research. There are pages on searching for books, on searching for articles, and some advice on how to do more effective searching.

It's difficult to design a research page for the Dean's Book course, because students end up writing on a wide variety of topics across the disciplines.

To this end this guide will offer general suggestions on doing research in a wide range of disciplines.

There is also a Library web page for Native American Studies.

Don't hesitate to contact me for an individual consultation on your research needs.
