This is a general STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) guide with resources and strategies to help you get started with research in these disciplines. it's a good starting place for students in the Summer Research Program, Faculty Mentor Program and others that are part of the Undergraduate Research Hub, as well as the REUs (Research Experience for Undergraduates) and internships. We also have more comprehensive subject research guides if you want to go beyond what is listed here.
Please don't hesitate to contact me (or your subject librarian) if you have questions, need further research assistance, or want to set up an appointment to meet for a consultation.
