Stewart Library Support for Undergraduate Research
Research Help

Students and faculty engaged in undergraduate research projects are invited to work with a subject librarian whenever needed. Please contact the subject librarian assigned to your discipline or department for assistance with:

  • completing a literature review
  • identifying and using online article databases and reference tools
  • accessing full text articles, ejournals and books
  • verifying citations
  • citing and documenting sources according to a particular style (APA, MLA, etc)
  • instruction sessions by librarians on using specialized databases or other information resources for researchers and research teams

Please also take advantage of our  Ask A Librarian reference service for research help via:

  • telephone or email library reference staff
  • chat with a professional librarian when the library is open - click on the link at the upper right of most library pages.

Library Facilities, Collections and Services

Information Literacy and Undergraduate Research

The library is committed to supporting faculty, students, staff and the broader community with information needed for scholarly and creative work. Librarians see themselves as partners in the undergraduate research initiative at Weber State University (WSU). Through WSU's Information Literacy program and requirement students are highly encouraged to gain information literacy competencies in their freshman and sophomore years. Students that have met WSU's information literacy requirement will arrive in the upper division coursework ready to engage in research in their major course of study. Undergraduate research experiences will better enable students to leave WSU as lifelong learners.
