The academic librarians at Sherrod Library are here to help with your research needs. We provide group or individual support for all ETSU graduate programs.  Whether you’re at the preparation, research or document management stage of coursework, thesis, or dissertation, we can help!

Professional Support

Consultations – Call, e-mail or walk in to talk to an academic librarian about any aspect of your research.  We can help you get organized, identify appropriate databases for your topic and help you to form a research strategy. 

Presentations and Workshops – We offer workshops on a variety of topics, from organizing yourself to academic searching to establishing your professional social media presence. 

The materials you need – Access the library catalog, research databases, or interlibrary loan with your ETSU username and password.  To check out materials or a laptop, use your ETSU ID.

Interlibrary Loan – Almost anything we don’t already own can be borrowed from another library.

ETSU Electronic Theses and Dissertations – Most ETSU theses and dissertations are available online
