Use the resources on this page to find sources and illustrations for your recommendation reports. Remember to think about RADAR for each source you find.
Although the library is your key to technical, scientific, and peer-reviewed resources, you may need to find sources outside of the library that will better suit your reports. You may need an Annual Report showing how many fulltime students were enrolled last year, or a company policy on harassment, or an organizational strategy on mental health. Perhaps you need data, or a patent, or archived blueprints. There are many different types of sources you can use, just think about which types are more appropriate to use when.
You can book and appointment with a librarian for further assistance.
