Guide Sections

Where Do I Start?

One of the best ways to get your feet wet in researching a particular topic is to find an introductory resource that will give you a good overview of a subject. This section will help you to find reference materials and other resources to get you started in your research.

Find Books

APU has a large collection of books, periodicals and other media, all of which were selected in order to provide you with the resources you'll need for your coursework and class assignments. In this section, you will find Search Everything boxes and information for using APU's online library catalog and LINK+ (an online catalog for 60+ libraries). There is also a sub-page that will take you to another guide (Finding Library Resources by Subject) which will help you use the catalog more effectively.

Find Journal Articles

Journal articles are often the best place to find more current information on a particular topic. This section will equip you to find the best databases and to successfully use them for your research.

Find Websites

Finding credible, authoritative Internet resources can be difficult. You will find not only relevant websites in this section, but also tools that will help you be a better searcher.

APA Citations

Need help with APA citations? Then this is the section for you.

APU Libraries Website

This is simply a link that takes you right to the APU Libraries homepage, where you can use the library catalog, journal article databases, etc.


Human Behavior and the Social Environment

This subject guide is meant as a complement to SOCW310, and will provide various tools and resources to help students in their studies.
