Items not at MU Libraries

There are several ways to get things that the Marquette Libraries do not already have. Here is more information about other local libraries, reciprocal borrowing agreements, and of course our Interlibrary Loan service.

Lists of New Books, Journals, & Media

Research databases, A to Z

Descriptions of over 400 online databases are provided. Databases can also be listed by discipline.

Research Guides

These subject-specific Research Guides are designed to help students and faculty with their library research.

Turnitin

The Raynor Memorial Libraries coordinate campus-wide access to Turnitin.com's Originality Checking, a service which enables faculty and students to maintain the University's high standards for academic honesty [http://www.marquette.edu/rc/academichonesty.php]. Originality Checking allows educators to check students' work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against continuously updated databases. Every Originality Report provides instructors with the opportunity to teach their students proper citation methods as well as to safeguard their students' academic integrity.
