Purpose of this Guide

The purpose of this guide is to provide information on MU Libraries' resources and services specific to the research needs and interests of those pursuing advanced studies in education.

A good place to start research is by using Summon@MU (see the box below).  This is a massive database including citations for articles, dissertations, books, DVDs and much more.

Use the tabs at the top of the page to find the resources for more comprehensive searching.

Search Summon@MU

Summon@MU is a good place to start your research. 
Summon is a simple and fast search engine that helps you discover relevant information on any topic from the MU Libraries' collections. It is the place to start your research in scholarly journals, books, videos, maps, manuscript collections, music scores and more. From your search results, it's one step to the full text of articles or you can see if a book is on the shelf.
