Graduate Student Resources

A guide to library resources for graduate students at Fresno State

7 Tips for Grad Student Success from the Madden Library

1-Contact your Subject Specialist Librarian.  

Subject specialist librarians are a terrific resource to help you find just the right research strategy, information sources, and statistics. Your librarian is available for in person and online one-on-one consultations!

2-Download Endnote and Attend Endnote workshops available through the library and the Graduate Writing Studio.

Endnote will help you organize your research and then cite it correctly.

3-Take advantage of Online Library Help.

We have research guides, email reference, (we usually take less than 24 hours to answer your question and sometimes much faster) and 24/7 Chat service with Real Librarians who understand research and have access to Fresno State’s resources.

4-Visit the library and use our award winning facilities and services.

We have over 20 miles of compact shelving holding over a million items available for checkout. Graduate students have exclusive extended borrowing privileges.

5-Reserve an Individual or Group study room

Study rooms are also available in the Graduate Writing Studio.

6-Discover Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Service and Link+ Services.

Obtain articles, books and more items that are not available from the Madden Library. Did you know Graduate students are also eligible for the Get It Now (GIN) Service that delivers select journal articles to your email in 24 hours or less?

7-Take advantage of the Graduate Writing Studio (GWS)

Work one-on-one with a writing consultant, in person or virtually via Zoom. Located on the Second Floor, North.
