Computer Science - Graduate Students: Home


In UW-Whitewater computer science graduate programs, you may be elbow deep in A.I., computer security, or another area. You may also be asked to do research related to your major. "Googling" to  perform research does not provide sufficient results.  You will be asked to find peer reviewed or scholarly articles for assignments. Trade publications may also contain relevant information. You may even be looking for books, depending on the parameters of your assignments. All of these sources are not available through Google.

This guide shares some key principles for how to think about information sources, discusses the value of different types of resources, and walks you through how to formulate a search strategy that will save you time when doing your research.
