Other ideas for information

Institutional repositories

  • Can give you a sense of department/faculty work
  • Can give you a sense of student work

Look for Faculty scholarly and/or creative work in Summon, Databases, and catalog

People -- often just talking to alums, current students, faculty, and folks across campus can give you information from a variety of view points

Finding books

Find the books by going to the catalog and searching.  Seems simple, right?  If at first you don't succeed, try different key words.  For instance, for grad school, try "graduate study", "graduate programs", "graduate school", phd pograms.  You can even combine these words with your area of study.
