Services for Graduate Students

In addition to the collections and services offered to all patrons, the University Libraries offer many resources of special interest to graduate students.

Individual Instruction Appointments

Though available to everyone, personal appointments are especially useful for graduate students beginning their research.  Schedule a time with a knowledgeable librarian to help you learn what tools and databases are available in your subject. 
On Main Campus - Contact your Subject Librarianto make an appointment.

On the Health Science Campus - please use this form to schedule an individual appointment at the library or in your office.

Are you a Teaching Assistant?

We can help teach your classes how to use the library, too!  We have classrooms in the Carlson Library (some with hands-on computer labs), or we can come to your classroom or lab.   See the Faculty Services page for more details..

Theses, Projects & Dissertations

As a requirement of graduation, you will submit your thesis or dissertation electronically. It will be added to the OhioLINK Electronic Thesis & Dissertation (ETD) Center  for access to anyone via the Internet.


Graduate students (and others) may apply for one of the nearly 450 lockers located in Carlson Library.  The small lockers are located near the stairwells on the 3rd (north side only) and 4th floors.  Lockers are assigned on a semester basis, and you can use them as a safe place to store your stuff while in the library, or to keep frequently consulted materials (be sure to check out the items at the Circulation Desk first!)  To request a locker, fill out the application available at the Carlson Circulation Desk.
