All essential library resources are available online, 24 hours a day via Cleary Online Library and other Web-based resources.
Cleary University Online Library
The Cleary Online Library is an information portal, and a source for learning more about library resources and services, and for initiating project research. To receive services without coming to campus, students may take advantage of the e-mail services provided by the Director of University Libraries. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online Databases and Research Resources
Subscription-based databases are essential components of the online libraries. After logging on to the library, students have access to business articles, reports, company information, legal information, market research reports, and full-text books. A partial list of the resources available to all Cleary students includes Proquest, Lexis/Nexis, Hoovers Online, eBrary, and Marketresearch.com.
Another excellent source of information is the Michigan Electronic Library (MeL). MeL complements the Cleary business databases by providing a wide range of information and articles on business and non-business topics. In addition to providing full-text journal and magazine articles, MeL presents information organized by subject guides and an electronic reference desk. This is an information portal sponsored by the Library of Michigan available to all Michigan residents.
Additional research resources include the Cleary Research Wiki and the Research and Library blog. The Research Wiki is a collaborative project where designated faculty members provide content and links to subject-related resources. Research and writing tools are provided, along with links to essential policies, and grading rubrics. APA resources are linked via the Research Wiki. The Librarian’s blog is used to update students on library database changes, provide research tips, and to circulate other library-related information.
Finally, the University subscribes to NoodleTools and Turnitin. NoodleTools is an APA citation composer and note-taking utility, and research log utility. Turnitin is an originality checker used to help students identify what should and should not be cited.
Students and faculty seeking research assistance may contact the Director of University Libraries for help. Assistance is primarily available via e-mail or by phone. To request assistance via e-mail, send a message to email@example.com.
