Archived Resource Guides

The Central Library Sections have professional library staff that prepare and maintain up-to-date bibliographies, pathfinders (overview guides to resources in the Library), information brochures, and research guides on special topics. These are being published onto our Web site as they are updated and prepared. Some of these guides are published here in PDF format, and may have links to online versions or the item records in our Catalog. Some of these guides may be developed and co-published with other organizations, groups, and/or libraries.

Please contact the Central Library section of your interest to speak with the staff directly about these materials, or your research topic.
