GETTING STARTED: A Set of Basic Guides
Hundreds of research tools are available in the MSU Libraries, so it can be confusing to know where to begin. Guides to "Getting Started" are available for major subject areas, disciplines and fields of study. Each guide typically notes key bibliographic indexes, relevant materials in the print format Reference collection, and the name of the librarian assigned to the topic as a subject specialist.
