Welcome to the Jessup Playbooks

Get strategies and tips on assignments and research.

In sports, players use playbooks as road maps to victory. A playbook contains strategies and moves developed by experienced coaches and other players, and players rely on the fruits of this expertise to maximize their game. At the Jessup Library, our librarians function as research coaches, and they use their expertise to put together playbooks that provide you with strategies to succeed in research. Use the Jessup Playbooks and win at college!
Use the playbooks whenever you need help with research in a specific discipline or help with a specific assignment. Discipline playbooks offer lists of materials (databases, books, websites, etc.) that apply to the specific discipline (for example, history). Assignment playbooks provide information on how to complete a specific assignment (an annotated bibliography, for example).
Simply navigate to a specific discipline or assignment playbook and read the information included in it. If you have questions or need more help, contact the library's research coaches at
