Students in KU Libraries

Welcome to KU Libraries. We are so happy you've arrived: you belong here.

 Hello, University 101 students! This course guide will provide you with resources intended to help you with your Make Your Mark assignment, such as links to potential sources and instructions for using the KU Libraries to find additional sources you might need.

While many of these sources are tailored toward your UNIV 101 class experience, this guide is also intended to be a place to find research help in other courses, too. Research is a skill and takes lots of practice!
