The University of Kansas Libraries
Welcome to the Regents Center Library! In addition to the information on our website, we're also happy to meet with all students for one-on-one appointments, tailored to your research needs. Librarians can tailor appointments to cover everything from how to find general articles to in depth literature reviews for a PhD. Just call or stop by to set up an appointment.
Finding Books and Articles
Since many of our students research from home or work, we've prepared several handouts that walk through the process of finding books and articles. Our book collection is small, but currently enrolled Edwards Campus students can have books from the Lawrence campus sent to the Regents Center Library desk for pickup. Over 30,000 full text journals are available online 24/7.
An important part of research and writing papers is citing sources correctly. KU provides the citation software EndNote for its graduate students, faculty, and staff and EndNote Web for its undergraduate students. The Regents Center Library offers classes in how to use EndNote. Please see our Classes and Events page or contact Lissa Lord for details. Information on installing EndNote can be found here. More information on citing sources can be found at the Writing Center website here.
The KU Writing Center offers help with paper writing, citations, and study skills. If you need more in-depth research assistance or can't find enough articles or books on your topic, please feel free to check out the walkthroughs for finding specialized databases and advanced search techniques at our Advanced Research page or give us a call at (913) 897-8570.
