Pre-Search

Getting started with research is sometimes the hardest part! Most likely, you'll have to do some pre-search to figure out exactly what your research topic is going to be. For your presearch, I recommend spending some time exploring your topic(s) of interest, looking at:

  • Websites
  • Books
  • Encyclopedias & other Reference Resources

Finding Books & Reference

Visit the library homepage at odu.edu/library to find Monarch OneSearch. This is a great place to start if you're looking for books or a few articles.

Reference resources (encyclopedias, dictionaries, anthologies, etc.) can be a great place to begin your research, find background information, definitions, summaries of topics, historical timelines and more. Listed below are links to just a few reference resources in your area.
