All Creative Writing: Doing Research

Library Guides

Librarians have put together a variety of guides on different subjects to help students with their research. If the background research for your creative writing piece falls under an area covered by one of these guides, they are great places to see what resources the library has on those subjects!

Find the Subject Guides at this link.

Reference Sources

Do background research for your projects or find information on literary terms, authors, and more.

Be sure to check out our History research guide and consult a librarian if you have any questions about doing historical research! See especially the Daily Life Reference page, which provides resources for what daily life was like for people in various historical periods.
