The Seminary of the Immaculate Conception’s Library has created and collected a number of informative LibGuides on their website. Although they directly reference the SIC’s collection, they are relevant to the Corrigan Memorial Library as well, all the more so because the two Libraries (as well as the Library of the Cathedral Seminary House of Formation in Douglaston, NY) are members of a Consortium and committed to sharing resources and knowledge.

Of particular interest may be the Guide to Citing Your Sources.
