Quick Guides

The Pratt Library  has prepared a series of "Quick Guides" that answer frequently asked questions.  In addition we have several "Libguides" which cover particular areas in more depth. A complete list of available Libguides can be found here: http://libguides.cchmc.org/.  

Both Quick Guides and Libguides are updated frequently.
