Subject specific resources:

What to know what resources we have in your discipline or that might be helpful for your research?

From the library's homepage, click on "Online Resources" to see the list of databases and e-resources we have access to. 

From the dropdown list, you can limit your search by type of resource (Ex: News, Data, Reference) or discipline (Biology, Education, Political Science).

Request a resource:

I need one or more books or tangible things that can be purchased:

Email Jamie Kohler or fill out a Resource Purchase Form Here, if it's not prohibitively expensive, we will likely purchase it, and let you know when it is cataloged and ready to be checked out.

I need a database or journal that you don't have:

If you'd like us to purchase a new journal and/or e-resource that is a bit trickier since they can often cost several thousand dollars.

We will work with you and your department to make decisions about resources that you need, including the possibility of exchanging resources for the next academic year to better align with potential usage.

If possible, we will set up a trial for you to try out new e-resources.
