Research Tips in IDES

Tip #1

  • When looking for research in library databases, consider searching in Art & Design databases as well as Business databases to find resources on a spectrum of topics related to innovative & industrial design such as artists, artistic movements, product design, marketing, and branding.

Tip #2

  • Try searching Google Books to find books and vintage magazines about your research topic. You can view a preview of the book and in some cases even read the book full text.  If you find a book that looks promising for your research, search its title in OneSearch, CU Books, or OhioLINK to request it.
