Library Research at ASP

By - Systems Librarian June 29th, 2009

Lura Sanborn – Reference Librarian

Ohrstrom Library staff have put together research guides for several of the courses offered through ASP.  Two guides are recently updated and reformatted, and can now be accessed through the sidebar links in the Ohrstrom Blog (on the left in the blue column, below the “Categories” links under the “Research Guides” heading). Check back for more updated guides.

These guides have been created to showcase library materials relevant to the Artificial Intelligence and Biomedical Ethics ASP research projects.  Click on the screenshots below to access the guides, or find the links in the blog sidebar under the “Research Guides” heading. Each guide has also been converted to PDF format so they can be easily printed or downloaded for off-line access.  The PDF links are located at the bottom of each guide.
