Quick Intro to the Home Page

Research QuickStart

This guide will help guide you through the research process using online and Library sources. Follow each tab, or pick the section that best fits where you are in your research, and dive in!


Getting Started

These guides are a great place to start when finding information on your subject.

Subject & Class Guides are arranged by academic departments and programs and are put together by Subject Specialists. These guides integrate subject-based Internet resources, instructional guidance, and the Library's electronic resources.


Off Campus Access

So long as you have a NetID and password, off-campus access requires no special instructions.

When you try to access a UConn-only resource (such as a research database), you will be prompted to log in using your NetID/password.  Once you've logged in, you can open other UConn-only resources without having to login again.

Tip: If you're on a public computer, exit the browser to protect your private information (including your NetID & password).
