These are some of the many tools and skills
learn from the Guide to Library Research: Hawai‘i Pacific
University, third edition. This book, developed by the HPU
libraries, is used in all Writing 1200 classes, and will help
their research skills throughout their university experience.
If you have a copy from your writing class, keep it handy
for future research assignments. If you’re new to HPU
and don’t have a copy yet, it is available at the HPU
Bookstore for anyone to purchase.
The Guide to Library Research covers information about the
HPU libraries, their services and resources. You will learn
general library information, like how a call-number is designed,
what subject headings are, and how the online catalog works.
You will find information about online research, including
library resources via HPU Pipeline, helpful links to tutorials,
and definitions of key terminology.
The “Research and Writing Tools” section gives
a model for setting up your research paper strategy, the layering
of information for your paper, APA and MLA style examples,
So pick up a copy for ready reference—keep it by your
computer! For each book sold a donation is made to a scholarship
fund that supports HPU students—maybe you will be the
recipient of one of these scholarships!!
And please remember: If you have a question, ask one of our
friendly librarians—they love to help!
