Research Tools

The MSU Billings librarians have carefully chosen these sites to help faculty and students get started with research for projects, papers, and other scholarly endeavors.


The Library's catalog leads to records for all materials housed in the Library proper, as well as electronic links for eBrary books, NetLibrary books, and government documents online.


The Get Books link includes the MSU Billings Library Catalog, as well as sources such as WorldCat, which searches 50,000 libraries worldwide, and Project Gutenberg, a collection of free electronic books.


Get Articles lets you choose one of several different ways to search all the Library's databases.


How Do I...  includes helpful 1- to 2-page handout formatted sheets with how-to guides on using APA, MLA, and other style formats, as well as short guidelines on evaluating websites, the difference between magazines and journals, and more.


Good Free Websites are just that - a compilation of non-subscription websites chosen by the MSUB librarians as informative and useful sites with authoritative content.


Use the Full-Text Finder to find out if the library has access to full-text articles (electronic or in the library) in a particular journal, magazine, or newspaper.


Favorite Full-Text Databases leads to a list of databases most often used by students and faculty at MSUB.
