This guide was created to provide you with the resources you'll need to do research for your classes--and beyond!

During the renovation of the Taubman Health Sciences Library Building, the building is closed but our services are available.  Reserve books can be found at the Shapiro Undergraduate Library, & books that are in remote storage can be requested & sent for pickup to any library.  For more information on using the library, click here or contact me directly.

Looking for Dietetics Information?

There are different types of information available to dental hygiene students through the University Library system, in both print and electronic formats.

Look for the MGet It button, which provides links to electronic versions of journal articles.


Articles from scholarly journals are the primary source for recent research in a field, & this is where most cutting-edge health-sciences research will appear first. Searching in UM databases with MGet It links will connect you to these articles.


Books provide detailed background and historical information, so they're the place to look for generally accepted information. They also provide more references in their bibliographies. Reference Books include encyclopedias, atlases, & subject-specific dictionaries. Use these sources for definitions & shorter explanations.

Web Sites The internet provides a vast amount of information. Web sites from government departments & professional organizations are reliable sources.
