Research Tools

The following research tools will help you obtain books, journals, and articles. The Library also provides resources to help with APA citation. Whatever your research need, we have resources to help you get started.

Essential Resources

A Writer’s Handbook (pdf)
A very useful booklet for students to download and print. Contains information on how to format assignments and Integrative Master’s Projects (IMP). Also includes an APA primer.

A Guide to the Integrative Master’s Project (pdf)
Another very useful resource for students to download and print. Contains everything you need to know to get started on your IMP.

Research Databases

We recommend graduate students use the Search Everything function on the Library homepage. If you prefer to search single databases, e.g., Academic Search Premiere, ProQuest, Google Scholar, and ERIC, find links and suggestions on our dedicated Research Database Page.

APA Citation Resources

A Bank Street requirement is that all assignments and IMPs should be referenced and cited according to APA (6th ed.). Visit our APA Citation Resources Page for more information. For further questions, email or swing by the reference desk and we will do our best to help you.

Interlibrary Loan Requests

Requests through EBSCO Discovery Service are easy to make. Look for “Request this item through interlibrary loan” links on database pages. If you have checked our catalog and would still like to request an item from another institution, complete our Interlibrary Loan Request Form.
