CBE 101


Welcome to the CBE 101 LibGuide! This guide is designed to support your coursework in CBE 101, in particular to help build your understanding about how to find evidence (both scientific and non-scholarly) that supports your work in the challenges. Use the tabs at left to navigate through information related to the challenges you'll be completing this semester.

The UNM libraries have many other resources available for your research, and I am happy to arrange research consultations if you have trouble finding what you need. Don't hesitate to contact me with questions or resource recommendations!

Understanding Scholarly Sources

These videos from North Carolina State University Libraries -- both around three minutes long -- provide a quick overview of what scholarly sources are and what makes them different from non-scholarly (or popular) sources.
