Extremely Useful Library Tools and Specialized Resources for Design: Design Research Guide

Librarian: Karen DeWitt

These guides are a combination of online tutorials and webguides. They're intended to help you locate materials and do research in the design disciplines and in the Design Library itself. If they don't provide enough information for your needs, or if it is unclear to you what to do, please don't hesitate to send me an email or ask one of the Design Library staff for assistance.

Citation Management Tools

These tools help you manage the resources you find. Rather than printing out or emailing records to yourself, you can create an account and organize all your resources in one place. These tools will also format your bibliography or footnotes for you.
