This is a one-stop guide to help you with your research in the MSIRE program. In this guide you will find tips and tricks on how to search for articles, how to find industry information, locate statistics, and how to cite your sources!

It helps you find the full text of articles. When doing research, you often find a citation or maybe an abstract, of an article in a database but the text of the article isn’t included. CitationLinker and its associated tools (360Link, eJournal Portal, Find it) will let you check all the other library full text resources to see if you can get the article either in a different database or in the library’s print or microform periodicals.
