Education Doctorate: Start Guide for Graduate Level Research

Search the Catalog

The WSU Library has a modest collection of researched materials. For most research topics, you will be able to locate credible books within our collection. Use the WSU Library Catalog (linked below) to locate books in our library. 


If the Krueger Library Doesn't Have It

For dissertations and for some topics you may discover that the Krueger library does not own enough books or other materials for you to develop a thoughtful and in-depth understanding of the topic. The Krueger Library has a great collection; however, it is modest in size when you compare to the University of Minnesota or University of Wisconsin. We are fortunate, though, that when the Krueger Library does not own the book, article, films, music score, CD, or other materials, you may request it from another library using the Krueger Library Interlibrary Loan Service. This service is not for textbooks; textbooks are available at the WSU bookstore.
