Try using Summon, the library search engine that searches all of the library's resources. You can access summon from the library's home page, http://libguides.washjeff.edu/home.

Type your search terms in the Summon box and unleash Summon. Remember to just type in key terms. For example if your research question is What are the largest cities in Mexico, type in large cities Mexico.

Once you get back a list of results, use the filters on the left side of the page to refine and focus the results list.
As you find results that will work for you click the folder icon in the results list. After you have a few items saved, scroll back to the top and click on the folder in the upper right corner. Then you'll have the option to e-mail your saved items to yourself, which will make your life easier when you need to get back to them.

Still confused? Having a hard time finding relevant sources? Ask a librarian!!
