Where Should I Begin?

The amount of information available, as well as searching for and sifting through that information, can be overwhelming.  Use this guide as you would a map; it'll help you find what you're looking for more efficiently.

Often when beginning to research, you'll need a broad overview of your subject--some  background information, statistics, definitions, and perhaps some biographical information.  This type of information may be found under the Background Info tab.  

For research or current information, Philosopher's Index will lead you to the most scholarly journal articles on philosophy and ethics.  Find Philosopher's Index, and many other resources for finding articles, under the Articles tab. 

For more breadth and depth of coverage, use books.  Under the Books tab, you'll find WorldCat, which will give you access to close to 2 billion records from over 72,000 libraries. 

The Colloquium tab will provide you with resources related to ethics and the current LVC colloquium. 

Need help?  Ask a Librarian.  Multiple ways of contacting us may be found under the Get Help tab.   Need guidance in citing your sources?  The Cite tab will provide information on how to best do that.
