This course guide is for Honors 1500 (Introduction to Research: An Interdisciplinary Perspective); however, it has basic research steps and tools that are useful for any research you do. If you find you need more help, use the Ask Us services. Library Research Assistance staff members can be reached in person and by phone and email. You may also contact your subject librarian. For more information please check the Overview of the UNT Libraries Services.
The Honors College subject librarian is Jenn Stayton.
Subject librarians work in partnership with one or more academic departments, schools or colleges to enhance the Libraries’ collections and increase faculty and student access to library resources in all formats through reference, teaching and technology.
Subject librarians are here for you! To find out who your subject librarian is, please visit the Subject Librarians page.
You can also start your research on your own by using one of our Subject Guides for the area of your major!
