Your Starting Point for Research and Study


Welcome to this online guide!

This guide is prepared for BRE students. Here I will show you how to find different types of materials from and beyond the Library to support your assignment and research.

First Things First

A few key things to know:


Library's search engine. A one-stop platform to help you find books, journals, articles and more. Watch a tutorial to learn how OneSearch works!

Course Readings Course Resource List

Faculty Librarian
Each faculty has a designated librarian. We can schedule a consultation if you need assistance on looking for resources for your assignment!
