Writing A Research Paper: How to Find and Navigate InfoGuides

How to Find and Navigate Infoguides Step by Step Guide

1. Infoguides are helpful tools created by librarians to share information for classes, subjects, or resources. 

2. To access our main infoguides page go to our library website library.pepperdine.edu. Then click on the infoguides tab at the top of the library homepage. 

3. On the infoguide homepage, patrons can search for specific infoguides by topic, group, type, or the librarian that created the infoguide. You can also look for guides by inputting keywords into the search bar.  

4. To the right of the infoguides page is a preview list of all Pepperdine librarians. Click on the 'More' tab at the bottom of the list to view the complete list of our librarians. When you click on the librarian's name, you will be taken to their profile page. On the profile page will be a list of every infoguide the librarian created

5. Click the "By Subject" tab to view a list of infoguides by subject. For example, as pictured above, the selected topic is advertising. Next to the subject name is the number of infoguides on that particular subject. 

6. As seen in the example above, multiple infoguides for the subject are created for specific courses or provide helpful resources relevant to the subject

7. Once you click an infoguide, the infoguide page will contain multiple tabs with resources to help patrons find specific resources and databases for their research. 

8. Patrons can also use the search bar to look for particular information contained on the infoguide

9. In addition, patrons can find links to articles and online databases listed in the infoguide.  

10. And lastly, the contact information of the subject librarian that created the infoguide is provided on the home tab of the infoguide.
