Posted on September 1, 2021

The ASU Library has a variety of resources with a wealth of information specifically for graduate students. We urge students to take advantage of the library offerings below. 

Academic Support

  • "Library 501: What Grad Students Need to Know about the Library" is an asynchronous module that gives a broad overview of the library.

  • The library's tutorial page has tutorials on academic integrity, plagiarism awareness, citation management and other subjects that may be helpful.

  • The Graduate Students Guide library guide is newly updated and organized by the different roles that graduate students have here at ASU. 

  • The Online Students link on the library home page is also newly updated. 

  • The ASU Library One Search allows students to find materials and explore the library catalog.

Research Support

  • Researcher Support offers guidance across the research lifecycle in everything from planning to data storage.

  • The ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations allows students to research and build upon the past work of graduate students.

  • Citation managers allow graduate students to save and organize their references more efficiently. ASU Library supports three citation managers: Zotero, Mendeley and EndNote.

Additional Resources

  • ASU writing centers offer a dynamic, supportive learning environment for graduate students who are currently enrolled in 500, 600 or 700 level courses. .

  • Learn about graduate funding opportunities and research support through ASU Knowledge Enterprise.

  • Graduate students have free digital subscriptions to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Even more resources can be found on the Graduate Students link on the library’s home page. 

In addition, ASU Librarians can provide instruction (virtually or in-person) to graduate classes, meetings, cohorts, etc. on general library tools and resources, discipline-specific library tools and resources, citation management, copyright and many other subjects. If you have any questions about instruction or need help connecting with a librarian who supports your program(s), reach out to Graduate Outreach and Instruction Librarian Matt Ogborn.
