Tea with the provost
The “Research Guides” are organized in a tabbed format that appears near the top of each guide. On the “Research Guides” main page, the individual guides have been grouped under broad subject categories and can be accessed by clicking on the “+” box next to each broad category.
Also, appropriate “Research Guides” have been grouped under the various colleges for those users who are looking for information associated with a college or department.
The complete list of topics is available by clicking on “Browse All [current number of guides] Guides” next to the search box. Library users are encouraged to explore the “Research Guides” and bookmark appropriate ones.
A mobile-friendly version of the University of Delaware Library web page is available directly at www.lib.udel.edu/m/.
