QUICK Library Research Help. The University Library provides assistance in many ways during library hours, especially during academic sessions:
FOR MORE HELP, contact resource/research specialist Randall Halverson. I'm happy to support your classwork or research via email or Canvas message suggestions or by appointment. Email is an effective medium to send questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. For the best results, please include your course in the subject line, and background details, especially,
details about your project topic, such as your personal or professional interest in the topic,
whether you want to focus your topic and explore possible research directions, or search for "big picture" overview sources or in-depth specialized sources, etc.,
search resources and strategies that you've already tried.
To Make a RESERVATION to meet by Zoom, Teams, or in-person, please use the library's "Consultation" appointment page, selecting my name. from the list. If my time options shown on the calendar don't work for you, you are welcome to send 2 or 3 days/times you could meet by email. I'll respond. :~)
Industry Research and More
Early-on: find background to understand a topic & explore possible directions for project research
Specialized resources: can be helpful later in a project
See resource details via mouse-over note. Asterisks indicate that we have 2 or more ebook copies.
You can access almost all of the library's electronic resources (databases) from home or other location so long as you are an IUPUI student, or staff or faculty member. Library resources are "IP-filtered". Access typically requires using the campus computer network, such as the campus wireless system, connecting via IUanyWare, by using a library site link to the resource (from off-campus, brings up an IU login popup window to authenticate) or via an IUPUI VPN as described at "Off-Campus Access to Resources (EZ Proxy)".
With Covid-related network changes, VPN does not always work for certain resources. In that case, use a library site resource link or install our new EZProxy Bookmarklet.
Note that for Skillsoft IT- and Business-related ebooks, using a library site link is required on or off the campus network.
