What's in This Guide?

Welcome to the Research Guide for WCC and Mercy college students in the STEM Scholars Summer Academy!

This guide is a collaboration between the faculty of both schools, and is an introduction to a selection of materials to help you locate sources on soil and plants. The tabs at the top will direct you to books, databases, websites, organizations, articles, and other resources to get you started on your research.

This research guide is not a comprehensive list of materials and does not represent ALL of the resources available at WCC or Mercy. Our hope is that you will contact us so we may give you more directed assistance if you need it.

If you have questions about this guide, please contact any of the following people:
