Higher Education Databases

For specific results on "teaching in an academic field",  select a database from your academic discipline's [Subject Guides]. 

Searching for Dissertations & Theses: You may find full-text or 25-page previews in subject-related databases (ProQuest, ERIC, CINAHL, etc.).

  • If you've already identified a dissertation or thesis and seek the full-text version, search the graduating institution's website or library for that dissertation/thesis title. 
  • Otherwise, try the following tools to identify the literature - and - if you've lucky - score a free copy of one.
  • If you cannot locate a free copy, use RaiderLoan to borrow a circulating copy from the graduate's home library. 

College & Library Policies and Procedures

Department Liaison Librarians

Every academic department and many service departments and college initiatives are assigned a liaison librarian.  The liaison librarian is the designated information specialist for your department.  That work may include:

  • attending academic department meetings to better understand your curriculum needs.
  • creating and curating Subject Guides supporting your department.
  • handling collection development (selection & weeding) in all formats making up the library collections supporting your department.
  • working on outside accreditation efforts; please contact your librarian one year prior to accreditors' visit.
  • one-on-one and/or department information literacy sessions for faculty.
  • advice on copyright issues.
  • assistance with OER materials.
  • creating information literacy materials for classes taught within the library's instructional program.
  • assisting departmental committees with research-related needs.

If your department does not have a liaison librarian, please contact Nan Schichtel at 616-234-3082.
