Where to Start
Many of you have already figured out what you want to investigate, either from your job or another class you took. But, for those of you who are still looking, check out the following....
*Take a look at the magazines on the library shelves in the Cooke Wing--

Green Scene (the magazine of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society)

Remember that many journals are online! (Click here to see a list of ~30,000 journals that the library has access to. )
* Don't forget the books downstairs.

Also check out tags on this site--lots of good ideas!
Never pay for an article or book or access to resources!
In most cases (except for textbooks), the Library has online journals, newspapers, magazines, ebooks and print books, or can get them for you at no charge to you!
Send the citation information to Access Services Librarian, Claire Drolet (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that she can borrow the material from another library.
Please allow two weeks for delivery.
