SJD Research Guide

This is a guide to library research resources that are available to SJD students.

Getting Started


Each SJD student has a "Personal Librarian" -- a reference librarian who will help navigate the scholarly research resources that are available to help complete the SJD thesis. The Personal Librarian helps with research strategies and methodologies, and he or she does not replace the faculty advisor's comments on substantive issues, nor the Writing Center's support of writing efforts. The Personal Librarian should reach out each SJD student, but the SJD student should feel free to contact the Personal Librarian, as well. A Personal Research Consultation can get you started with your research, with follow-up as needed.
