Online resources can help students explore the multifaceted discipline of philosophy. They include the webpages of the professional organization for philosophers (the American Philosophical Association), which provides information about employment opportunities as well as news of the discipline, websites that show how philosophy is relevant to all aspects of current events, such as Practical Ethics: Ethics in the News, and reference works such as the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy that give substantial, authoritative information about philosophers and the various areas and issues of philosophy. Research librarians at both the D'Amour Library and Law Library can provide additional assistance with accessing online databases.
