Research Help

Our tutorials and research aids are organized into seven sections that follow the steps in the research process. You can work your way through all seven steps, or pop in at the step that you need help with right now. Each step is divided into subsections to walk you through the process and help you find the information you need. Below the seven research steps, you can find quick-links to some of our most popular tutorials and handouts.

For additional help with writing for Seminary classes, see the Theological Writing Resources page  linked under the Sophi Search box on your student portal (must be logged in to access).

As always, you can contact us any time at libraryiq@austinseminary.edu with any questions.
