Research Assistance

Research Help Center

The library has created a research paper help guide to walk you methodically through the development of your assignment. There is even a section for faculty and how they use these modules in Blackboard. The optimal word is research. You can dive into whatever section you need day or night, on or off-campus. This guide is divided into seven sections and includes 68 brief videos and tutorials designed by librarians to guide your thinking and approaches to your research.  Don’t forget about the writing services  available from HBU’s outstanding Academic Success Center to blend your research into a well-written project. Their writing services are offered both in person and online (call 281-649-3226 for more). The librarians and the ASC have the resources and skills to help your do your best!

LibGuides Subject Guides

We would be delighted if our patrons would take some time to browse the various LibGuides.  And always remember that if you have any questions about your research you can consult a reference librarian at the Library’s Reference Desk (281-649-3180) or submit a reference question via HBU Answers.
