All essential library resources are available online, 24 hours a day via Cleary Online Library.
The Cleary Online Library is an information portal, a source for learning about library resources and services, and a place to initiate research. To receive services without coming to campus, students may access e-mail services provided by the librarian. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students and faculty seeking research assistance may contact the Director of University Libraries for help. Assistance is available via e-mail or phone. To request assistance, email email@example.com.
Students and staff may also request online chat help from an academic librarian 24-hours-a-day via the Chat with a Librarian service.
Subscription-based databases are essential components of online libraries. After logging into subscription databases, students can access academic business articles, reports, company information, legal information, market research reports, and books. A partial list of the resources available to all Cleary students includes ProQuest, NexisUni, CountryWatch, and Marketresearch.com.
Cleary students and staff may also access Michigan Electronic Library (MeL) databases via the Cleary Online Library. MeL complements the Cleary business databases by providing a wide range of information and articles on business and marketing. Significant databases include DemographicsNow and EBSCO’s Academic Search Complete.
The Cleary Library recommends using the free tool Zotero for collecting citation information and paper writing. Zotero interacts with Microsoft Word and Google Docs to make citing resources in APA format seamless. Turnitin is an originality checker used to help students identify what should and should not be cited.
