If you are not on an Edison State campus, you must login with your Edison credentials to access library resources. This will require you to input your name and Library barcode number (1973 + student ID #).

Searching for the application or concept's website is a great way to start your research. If there is a website, it will often provide the first-hand information that you need. Look for an "About Us" page or similar content.
