Before You Begin Your Research

After you have chosen a paper topic:

  • Begin your research early.  
  • Make an appointment with a reference librarian to discuss possible research avenues. 
  • Ask follow-up questions.
  • Remember that we will acquire material for you from other libraries at no charge to you.
  • Remember that we have access to UALR main library's, Ottenheimer Library's databases.
  • Only librarians should be your information source concerning what our library has or does not have.

Interdisciplinary paper topics occasionally require asking for interlibrary loans, which means borrowing books or other materials or requesting copies of articles from other libraries. 

  • Contact Jeff Woodmansee, Reference Librarian, if you need an interlibrary loan. 
  • Jeff's contact information:  Phone: 324-9991, Room 131 in the library.  Email:
