Library Services for Graduate Students

This page contains links to HSU Library services of special interest to graduate students.

Library Faculty by Subject Specialty - librarians are available by appointment for individual consultation on your information research needs.

Circulation - the loan period for graduate students is one semester (through the end of the current semester), except for certain categories of materials that have limited loan periods (CDs, maps, periodicals, etc.).

Current Awareness - use the following services to receive automatic notification of new publications in your area of interest. In almost all cases you first need to establish a user profile with the service.

HSU Theses - search in the Library Catalog for over 3500 HSU theses produced since 1950. You can browse by degree and/or enter a subject or title keyword or phrase, author or year. Results can be sorted by author, title or year. Most theses from Fall 2005 are available fulltext in Humboldt Digital Scholar.

Information Literacy

Information Management - a critical part of the student research process is keeping track of references (citations)—journal papers, books, web pages, images, quotations, etc.—that support your research so that you can properly cite them in your work using a required publication style. Reference Management Tools for Research and Writing lists recommended "reference management programs" available to HSU students.

Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery

Humboldt Digital Scholar - add a digital copy of your completed thesis to Humboldt's growing collection of institutional scholarship. Increase its visibility worldwide. See Getting Started with Humboldt Digital Scholar.
