Debate Team: A Library Research Guide (Morgan-Parmett)

Welcome to the Library!

This guide is designed to serve as a resource for your debate research. You may access the electronic resources from off-campus as long as you are connected to the UVM network. Please do not hesitate to confer with me or another librarian to help you find materials and/or discuss search strategies for your specific topic, at any stage of the research process.

Searching Off-Campus?

Before you begin your research you should connect to the UVM network. This enables you to access and use all the electronic resources licensed by the UVM Libraries, such as article databases, e-books, streaming media collections, etc. as well as online resources retrieved through CATQuest. Click the link below to learn how to connect to the UVM network through ezproxy or VPN (virtual private network).
