Welcome to Ashland University Library

library web siteWelcome to the Ed.D. Research Library Guide

This guide is a starting point for your library research. Here you will find information about AU library and OhioLINK databases, the AU library catalog and OneSearch, literature review resources, plus a comprehensive list of dissertations completed by previous cohorts and published to the OhioLINK ETD Center and ProQuest Theses & Dissertation.


Librarian Mentors

Faculty librarians at Ashland University Library are willing to schedule one-on-one time to meet with COE Doctoral students toi discuss research strategies and provide assistance. A librarian is assigned to every student at the beginning of each cohort; it is recommended you build a relationship with your mentor. However, you are encouraged to work with any librarian on duty at your convenience.

Drop-in Consultations

Help is not limited to your mentor librarian.  Email, text, call, or stop in the library to work with an AU librarian. During the semester, reference help is available Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Sunday, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Visit the library help page for additional information.
