. . Find sources for my research?
Starting your research can be tough, but these pages can help you along the way. If you're stuck at any point, talk to a librarian. Librarians can save you time and work by pointing you toward the best source of information for your topic.
. . Find out if someone else has investigated my research topic?
Along with searching book and article literature, reviewing existing dissertations can give you an idea what research has been done within a field as well as clue you into how to structure a dissertation.
. . Find articles on a topic?
The ULS has access to millions of full-text articles online through the ULS Databases
. . Find tips and techniques on how to use those databases?
. . Get help with writing and citing sources?

If Pitt Libraries don't have the books you need, you can use E-ZBorrow to request the items from other academic libraries. Borrow an item from one of 70+ other regional libraries -- fast! You will need your Pitt ID number (starts with 2P) to use E-ZBorrow.

If you cannot find the materials you need from Get It! or E-Z Borrow, try Interlibrary Loan (ILL)! You can order books or articles through this service, that will again be delivered to you for free.
ILL services are available to Pitt students, staff and faculty with a valid Pitt ID and Pitt computing account
