Changes for Fall 2020

Much has changed in life, on campus, and at the Duke Unviversities Libraries as we naviagate this semester.  Fall 2020 at the Libraries is your best source for up-to-date information about buildings, resources, and remote access.  As always, I am available for research consults via Zoom and can be contacted via email.  

Getting Started

For this class, you will be finding information and developing your information research process.  Your final project is a literature review focusing on your current lab research.  Use this guide as a starting point and feel free to email me to schedule research appointments as needed.
