Getting Started Print Page


Wayne State University Library SystemWelcome to the guide for the College of Education!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty in all Divisions and Programs in the College of Education.

I am available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to the College of Education. You may also contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest items for purchase.

Veronica Bielat, Librarian Liaison for the College of Education
