  • There are different ways to search for them. Go to the Library catalog: < http://www.lib.purdue.edu/ > and choose the “Books & Media” tab then enter the "last name, first name.” If we have it, in paper or online, it should show up here in our records. Another method is to use Proquest Research Database < http://purl.lib.purdue.edu/db/db156 > which stores thesis from all over electronically. To use this at Purdue, you must be affiliated with us. If you are not, do you have access thru an academic library? Another option would be for you to personally come into one of our libraries to use one of our computers to access this database. Another database to use is Dissertations and Theses which can be found under the Databases tab on the home page < http://purl.lib.purdue.edu/db/db78 >. We also have a research guide which will assist you in your search: < http://guides.lib.purdue.edu/content.php?pid=129088&sid=1107744 >

  • Because of licensing restrictions, Purdue University Libraries cannot give alumni access to subscription electronic resources, such as databases and e-books. Some library links such as e-Pubs: < http://docs.lib.purdue.edu/ >are open-access, meaning they are free and therefore do not require a Purdue career account. Of course, if you plan to visit the PU campus at any time you can come to a library that has visitor computers and access most of the databases this way. Some library locations have public access computers. These do not require a Purdue ID to logon. The kiosk in each library allows visitors the ability to access a free pass for logon. Please ask any library desk for more assistance if needed. You can also obtain a borrower's card if you want to check out materials. Finally, if you're still in Indiana, you may want to check out INSPIRE, which is a virtual library available to all Indiana residents. Some databases and e-journal/magazine content are provided there as well.

  • The primary reason for citing the sources you use in a paper or research project is to give credit to the authors of the works that you are using in your research. A secondary reason is to provide your readers with additional sources for further study, and allow them to put your interpretations into context. Failure to properly cite your sources constitutes plagiarism and is a violation of moral and professional ethics. Each type of source (book, article, database, web page,
    sound recording, etc.) has its own particular format of citation. The format may also vary depending on which citation style is used. More information and websites can be found at:< http://guides.lib.purdue.edu/content.php?pid=316710 >
    We also suggest you check out Purdue's OWL since they offer cite management online and personal assistance

  • Most of the student positions within Purdue Libraries are Federal Work-Study (FWS). This is a federally funded financial aid program designed to help students meet educational costs through the use of part-time employment. FWS students will be considered for employment at Libraries before students not on the FWS program. It is not impossible, but unlikely, that you will be hired if you are not part of the FWS program. A notable exception to the FWS preference is Libraries IT Helpdesk. Student workers for the Helpdesk are hired because of their IT skills not their FWS status.
