Welcome to the ODU Libraries! Whether your are on-campus, or a distance student, we are here to help you throughout every step of your research journey. This guide will introduce you to library services, the basics of finding resources, using databases, and managing your citations. Please see our subject guides for graduate research for more in-depth research in your area.
Each subject area at ODU has its own librarian who is an expert in research for that area. If you are struggling, or just need a little extra help with your research, worry no longer! You can set up an online or in-person appointment with your librarian and she will help you as much as she can with all of your research questions. Simply email your librarian to set up a time to meet!
There are several ways to get quick help with library research.
We work hard to create many online learning tools (like this guide!) for when you'd like to work through a problem on your own or learn about a new topic. Here are some of the best places to look for online help:
