Librarians at the University of Chicago Library have put together a collection of guides to assist with research in a wide array of majors and fields. These guides can direct you to the most pertinent and important journals, databases, primary sources, collections, study tools and more.

  • Subject Guides: These are organized to help you navigate and find sources for the major or field you are working in
  • Help Guides: These guides are designed to help you find specific types of sources (ebooks, articles, census data, newspapers etc.)
