This guide provides guidance in researching topics relating to ethics.


Ethics is a broad topic encompassing many academic disciplines and subjects so there isn't one right way to do research in this area.

Use the tabs on the left side of this guide as a starting point for your research and use the contact information on the right to schedule an appointment for individual research assistance.

Getting Started

Nimitz Search is a great place to start your research.  It searches most of the physical items in the library, along with many of our online subscriptions.  You won't find everything there, but it can help you get a sense of what information is available on a given topic.

Pro Tip: If results aren't related to your topic, modify the words you're entering in the search box. For example, if you don't find results for argument try conflict or disagreement.  

Pro Tip: After you see your results in Nimitz Search, use the options on the left to be more specific about what you want.  For example, specify that you only want to see books or journal articles or results from a specific time period.
