Hi! I'm Kathy McGowan, the librarian for Education, Counseling and Human Development. If you need any kind of help at all, please don't hesitate to contact me. In addition to email, phone and chat conversations, students frequently schedule appointments to meet with me one-on-one. I can help you find articles for your research topics, suggest methods for organizing and collecting materials, and serve as a contact/resource. I look forward to working with you!

Finding Journal Articles using Databases

Finding . . .


     Search the Voyager Catalog to find books, journals (not journal articles, there are no articles in the Catalog), DVDs, UR dissertations that are available through the University of Rochester Libraries. 

     Search the WorldCat database to identify books and other materials that have been published but which may not be available at the University of Rochester Libraries. Click on the red "Find@UR"  button to link to an interlibrary loan request form.




1.  I'd like to read a book in the Rhees stacks. Is there a way to have it held for me at the desk?

Yes! We'd be happy to retrieve the book and hold it for you at the Rush Rhees Q&i desk. We will email you when the book is available.

  • Look up the book title in the Voyager catalog,
  • If you get a list of titles--select the one you want by clicking the title.

Select "Request This Item" near the top of the page.


2. I'm graduating! How can I access UR library materials?
