Welcome to Doane University's library research guide for EdD students! In this guide you will find:

  • information about databases most relevant to your research

  • how to revise your search strategy for more effective results

  • how to request sources that are not freely available on the Internet or within the library's databases 

  • suggestions for managing your research materials with a citation/reference manager


The Perkins Library staff looks forward to working with you to make your research efforts successful!

Access Library Resources Off Campus 

This first time you click on a link for any resource from the library, whether it's a link in the catalog or to a database, you will be prompted to login to the library's proxy server.

Doane library login page

You will recognize the Doane logo on the page; just enter your Doane login credentials on this page and you're in!

You don't need to login at any other time while you have your browser open (e.g., Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.). If you get any other login prompts, please contact the library for assistance.
