The libraries provide many tools for tackling the research process. One tool is LibKey Nomad, a browser extension to more easily access library resources and get you content fast. 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 does Zotero help you organize your research sources, it also creates citations!
