An overview of what the Penfield Library faculty and staff offer to students in the Honors program, including orientations to how you can make use of library and information resources in your learning and research.
Your Discipline: A Community of Scholarly Practice
Every discipline has its own ways of doing the work of that discipline, its own practices as a community. These distinctive practices include the questions or problems they raise, the methodologies they use to answer those questions, and the means of communicating what the discipline as a community learns and claims to know.

Li offers a valuable overview of the work and information landscape of each discipline treated, and that is the reason we feature it here. However, the lists of sources are dated in many cases. If you want to use a source that Penfield does not own, speak to a librarian about other possible sources or availability at other libraries.
