The Libraries provide many tools for tackling the research process. One tool is LibKey Nomad, a browser extension to access library resources and get you the content you need quickly. This tool provides single-click access to library content from publisher websites, PubMed, Wikipedia, and more.
Another tool you should keep handy is Zotero. This open source citation management system keeps track of references to books, articles, and other items that you want to use in your research. Not only can Zotero help you organize your sources, it also creates citations!
