What Else?

If Wikipedia is the encyclopedia "anyone can edit" and your faculty won't let you use it, what else is there?  Plenty!  Many standard scholarly and popular refrerence resources are available online.  This guide will help you locate resources you can use (and some you should even be able to cite in introductory papers).

This guide will lead you to sources providing online content (not listings of where to go) and is organized by broad discipline. We've tried not to duplicate general items (like dictionaries and almanacs) on the discipline tabs.  If you don't see a particular resource on the discipline tab, check this home page to see if its is here.


NOTE: These resources will not lead you to professional journal articles on a topic.  For those resources please go to the Electronic Resources Directory and use the pull down menu (default is "All Subjects) to find your discipline, or contact the Jones Reference Desk by phone (254-710-2122), or by chat via the widget in the bottom right.


Make an Appointment

The Liaiason Librarians areavailable to help you find resources or to consult on your research and class assignments.  Please scan the Librarian profiles to the right and see which librarian works with your subject/department.  Some of us have a Tungle calendar link.  Clicking on the link will show the available appointment times for 24 hours from now and will ask you to suggest two meeting times.  The meeting request will be sent to that librarian and she/he will reply back to you to confirm the time.
