Welcome and Overview

Welcome to the Astronomy Research Guide.

This guide will give you some ideas for places to start gathering information about topics in astronomy, as well as some tips and tricks for researching your topic.

As your librarian for Astronomy, I am happy to help if you have questions or need assistance. Feel free to email me, and we can set up a time to meet in person - face-to-face, on the phone, or online.
