How to Use this guide ...

This guide provides instruction and a list of resources for the students in the Joaquin Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program.  


The guide is arranged around three concepts: 

  • How to Find a Citation,
  • How to Find Facts and Formulas, and 
  • How to Research a Topic
    This section is further divided into 3 sub-pages that discuss finding background information, books, and journal articles in more detail. 

At the top of the left-hand column on this page are links to other subject-based library guides that might be useful for students in the JBMSHP program.  These other guides provide more resources and detailed instructions in those subjects. 


Each page within this guide also has information in the top of the right-hand column on how to get more help.

Students are encouraged to use our "Ask a Librarian" http://lib.asu.edu/ask-a-librarian service for assistance.  

In addition to the in-person and phone service offered in each library building at the Information Desks, the ASU Library also offers an email service (24-hour turn-around) and a chat service to assist students with their research needs.
