Welcome to the Ed.D. Research Library guide, your starting point for accessing Archer Library information and research resources for the Leadership Studies program and dissertation research.
What's here? Below is an overview of available resources featuring contact information, research help and consultation details, and site navigation tips.
Faculty librarians at Ashland University's Archer Library are available for research consultations; one-on-one scheduled time to meet with doctoral students, discuss research strategies, and provide general assistance navigating library resources. You are encouraged to work with any librarian on duty at your convenience. However, if you want to be sure there is enough time to fully explore your dissertation topic, we recommend scheduling a research consultation appointment.
Scheduling a research consultation is easy.
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. Hours updates are available on the library website.
The start of your literature review is a great time to meet with a librarian. Why? Librarians can help you structure a search, suggest Boolean strategies, use search limiters, and truncate search terms. We can also provide helpful tips for managing your search in EBSCO database folders and connect to Google Drive. Interested in learning more? Select the literature review tab at the top of the page.
