 Welcome to the Place & Perspective Research Guide!  

This page will provide a springboard from place-focused writing throughout College Writing into the final research project. From environmental psychology to cultural geography-- and from systems thinking to design thinking-- place-based research plays a prominent role in understanding the world around us. This page includes video tutorials, scholarly databases and primary source resources to launch your own Place & Perspective project.  

Any questions? Reach out to your instructor via e-mail or to the librarians listed below.
