Library Resources & Services

Library Resources
The library provides the LR community with access to accurate and reliable information through subscriptions to hundreds of databases and a large collection of print materials (located in Hickory at the Carl A. Rudisill Library). The Powersearch tool searches multiple databases at once for articles. Search within a specific databases by using the Databases by Title or Databases by Subject links. The Library catalog is used located a book or ebook on a topic. Librarian-curated LibGuides help students start their research. Find a specific journal by using the Library Journal Titles tool.

Services for Students
The Asheville Library offers the same services to students as those available in Hickory: research assistance (navigating the databases, citation management, narrowing down a topic); Writing Center services; interlibrary loan (ILL); and reserves--just to name a few.

Services for Faculty
The library offers special services for faculty. Request a librarian to speak to your class about our resources, or partner with librarians on an upcoming assignment (we can make videos or other tailored tutorials). Embed a librarian into your Canvas course page, or even talk with a librarian about your research.

Library Workshops
The librarians regularly offer workshops to students, faculty, and staff at Lenoir-Rhyne. Find an archive of previous workshops on topics like APA citation, as well as information on when our next workshops will be held.
