Finding Books

Search the library catalog for books on education using the keyword, subject or title options. If you do not find the book you need, ask a librarian or check for the title in E-ZBorrow, our fastest self-service interlibrary loan system, or ILLiad that looks outside our network (and requires additional time.)

Try a keyword search:

higher education AND "human resources"

Try a subject search:

School Personnel, Management

Finding Articles

In most cases you can use the general Research Guide for Business Articles  But it is also worth checking the Education literature databases below for articles on HRD

best resource TIP: Use the thesaurus on the http://eric.ed.gov website to search the word "personnel" and select from the descriptors offered as a starting point for your search. Example: "Personnel Development"
