The Library Session and this guide are designed to prepare you for your research paper, but also to introduce you to the Claremont Colleges Library and the art of research. Use the menu on the left hand side to navigate through the sections, including a review of research strategy and library tutorials and a section on writing and citing.
Above all, when you're taking a class that requires research, please visit our Research Guides and remember that librarians are here to help you!
Below are some other databases that may be helpful for your research in Philosophy, Literary Studies, Religious Studies, and Women's Studies.
Library Search is the place to search our holdings for specific books and journals. It is also a good place to go for finding articles, books and other items -- electronic and physical -- in all subjects here and at most libraries in the US and many across the world.
Academic Search Premier is our main interdisciplinary database, not focused on any one subject, but a great place to start.
And if you are doing research in the sciences, try Web of Science as a start!
