Four Tips for Success

The Sul Ross Library exists to provide access to high quality information and trained staff to help you locate the information you need to succeed.

Stop by, call, chat, text or email us. If you haven’t visited the library in one of your classes (in person or virtually), make an appointment to come in and meet with us. We’re here for you!

To be a conscientious member of society today, it’s important to understand that information is all around us.

Before you begin research, read through each assignment to make sure you’re getting off on the right foot. Some questions you might ask yourself to help get organized are:

  • What is my professor asking me to do?
  • Do I need to cite specific types of information sources?
  • Is there a number of sources required?
  • How will I present my final product?
  • What citation style should I use?
