Adult & Higher Education Research Guide

This is a guide designed to assist students in the Adult & Higher Education graduate program in finding information sources.


A few things to keep in mind as an AHE student

  • Whether you do research on or off-campus, we can usually get you the research materials you will need.
  • Librarians are happy to help, it is what we do! Contact us using the information on the right.
  • We provide citation assistance in addition to finding article and books.

Graduate Students have the option of having library materials delivered to a department mailbox or to a home address. These delivery services are available with the set-up of a pre-established delivery location. Please contact the Interlibrary Loan Department at 360-650-3076 or email to discuss your options.
