Deciding What You Need

1. Does your assignment require books?  Journal articles? Web sites?

  • If your syllabus asks you for journal articles, click on the Articles tab, and learn about ProQuest.

  •  If your syllabus  asks for books, click on the Books tab, and learn how to find books in the RTC Library Catalog.

  • If your syllabus  asks for web resources, click on Web Sites. These pages list helpful web sites on many veterinary medicine topics. 
  •  

 
2. If no formats are specified, think about the age of the material you need.

  • If you are researching something that is a established fact, try books (found in the RTC Catalog) or encyclopedias (found in the RTC Catalog) or Credo Reference (found on the RTC Library Database page). Examples of established facts include "anatomy of cats", or "managing a veterinary practice".

  • If you are reseaching something new, like "the latest trends in pet cancer care" or "new legislation affecting pet foods", try journal and newspaper articles (found in ProQuest.)
