Introduction: About this guide

Welcome to the Library Resources guide for the Human Development & Family Studies! 

This guide is designed as a jumping-off point for your research in the department of Human Development & Family Studies.  It covers key resources, both in print and electronic, but is not comprehensive.  Remember that research queries in the area of human development & family studies are often interdisciplinary, so be sure to check for library resources in other areas like art, education, ethnic studies, gender studies, health, history, law, psychology, etc.---depending on your topic of inquiry.
