If you have no idea what library resources can help you and need a general list of resources that match your subject, check out our Library Subject Guides.

This is a great place to start with the class– just look the topic up by subject!


I want to learn how to search using the library.bryant.edu homepage!

Check out our video tutorials– these short videos show you some of the great ways that you can search for books, articles, videos and more.

There are even some specific videos that you can watch by subject.


I still would like more help– can I talk to someone?

Yes! You can contact us anytime the library is open and you can reach us by phone, computer or in person.

 

We love to help you with ANY question that you might have.

Feed Your Curiosity: News Articles and our Databases

Standard

Ever read a news article that piques your curiosity?  Or, something interesting that cites its sources, and you want to read those articles to become more of an expert on the topic?  You can!

For example, take the recent New York Times article titled, “Accounting for Taste: Not for Your Ears Only: How Sour Gets Its Zing”. This article discusses a recent scientific study on taste reception cells that was published in Science, which you can read in full here through the library’s databases!

When you’re reading articles, you can always search the library catalog for the research cited, or search directly within the many databases to which we subscribe to learn more.  If you are reading the article on campus and the citation is hyperlinked, you will be routed directly to the article if we have access to it. Try it, the next time you’re curious about a topic!

Who knew dental and oral care markets could have such exciting graphics?

As long as you have a Bryant username and password you can use it away from campus too! This database shows you executive summaries, analyst reports, infographics, predicted market growth, consumer behavior data, upcoming trends and industry & product overviews! (Can you tell how excited we are about this database?)
