Resources for Graduate Students

Any student working on a Master’s degree needs to be proficient in research. Using the library’s databases will assist you in your coursework towards your degree.  Follow the tabs for recommended resources for each graduate degree offered at Reinhardt University.

Tips for Starting Your Research

Databases provide scholarly articles published in professional and trade journals across all disciplines.  The research and information in these articles will give you an edge in your research.  It is recommended to use these before books when researching, as they are published more frequently and quickly than traditional books.  As a Reinhardt student, you have access to over 150 databases.

GALILEO and ProQuest Databases offer interdisciplinary search of multiple databases in one search. These are excellent places to begin research.

Use the “Advanced Search” to customize & narrow your results.

TIP: Be sure to always check “Full Text” and “Scholarly (peer reviewed) sources” before clicking the Search button. This will ensure you only receive the search results that will be useful to you.
