Attending another campus? Access valuable resources online

If you are enrolled in classes at one of Union's regional campuses, be sure to take advantage of the newest research guide created just for you by public services librarian Melissa Moore.

Those who will benefit from using this research guide include Union students at the Germantown and Hendersonville campuses and The Stephen Olford Center in Memphis, and those enrolled in The Memphis Teacher Residency Program, which offers a master's degree in Urban Education.

Access the guide here: Or click on Research Guides on the library's homepage under "Quick Links" and then click on BSOL (Continuing Education/Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership) in the lefthand column, then Library Guide for Regional Campuses.

Here's what you'll find in this research guide: 
  • Links to information about programs and resources for specific coursework at each campus
  • A tab on research basics, including tips on how to identify and find scholarly sources
  • A tab that offers a sampling of general resources online, which will help you get started on your coursework and expand your research skills
  • A tab that provides resources for graduate school and career planning
The library's Distance Learners Research Guide (which also can be accessed under the BSOL heading) contains much of the same information and provides tabs for each campus or program for which you may be enrolled.

With the research guides created by your librarians at Union, no matter where you land in West Tennessee, you can still stop in and get assistance.
