New SuperSearch Features: Research Starters

Like Wikipedia, but want to get your information from a reliable source? Have a difficult research topic and don’t know where to start? The Library has recently implemented Research Starters in SuperSearch, to help with those tricky research situations!

Research Starters provide summary articles for popular topics that are authoritative and suitable for use in academic papers. These articles provide links to related topics, as well as short bibliographies to help with further research. Research Starter summary articles will always appear on the top of the results list for popular topics.

So get started on that big research project today, with this great new resource from the Twin Cities Library!

To learn more about the development and implementation of Research Starters, check out Library Journal’s recent article about them!
