Library Guides

The Library Guides, also called LibGuides, are a collection of subject-specific guides and instructional how-to guides. From the main page, you view the guides grouped by a broad subject area or filter by group, type, or librarian. Note that each degree specialization has its own Library Guide filled with related selected databases, journals, books, dissertations, and more. These subject guides are a great starting point for becoming familiar with resources in that discipline.

If you have any questions, or would like to suggest a resource for inclusion within a particular library guide, you may locate the librarian's contact information on the lower left-hand column within that guide. You may also contact the Library at

Library Collection

The Library provides high-quality resources to support both the university curriculum and lifelong learning. The collection includes thousands of peer-reviewed journals, as well as newspapers, magazines, videos, e-books, dissertations, and more. The free Interlibrary Loan service allows users to request and electronically receive articles, book chapters, reports, or other resources when not available in full-text. Alumni have continued access to a growing collection of journals and databases following graduation. See the Alumni Guide for details.

To access all Library resources, go to the A-Z Databases link on the homepage. For quick access to the most frequently used resources, see the box below.
