Personal Research Assistance​

We are more than happy to help you with your research. Please reach out to us.

  • Make an appointment for a one-on-one research session. E-mail or call your department's liaison librarian — or use our online form to request a time. 
  • Explore your subject page for discipline-specific resources. You can see a list of these pages at our Research Guides link. 
  • Learn specialized database search strategies. Librarians can help you navigate subject-specific databases (like CINAHL for medical research) more efficiently. Contact your liaison librarian to learn more.
  • Get access to off-campus materials. Librarians can help you access materials through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Idun Institutional Repository

Augsburg's online repository of scholarly and creative work, Idun, provides access to the scholarship of Augsburg faculty, students, and staff, making it available (with permission) to scholars around the world.

If you've published an article, written a book, or created a presentation, our librarians will help you get a legal digital copy online — or link to information about it on another site.

If you have something to submit, use the Submit Research link.

Interlibrary Loan

You can request books, online articles, and more from other libraries by clicking on the ‘Request through Interlibrary Loan’ button in the catalog record.

  • In most cases, requested materials will be delivered to Augsburg within a week.
  • You will be notified by email when your items are ready for pickup.

Note that e-books and streaming videos are generally not available through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

If you have a citation for a particular journal article or book, you can also access the Interlibrary Loan form directly to place a request.

To check on the status of a request, cview your library account and what materials you have on order.

If you have any problems requesting books or other materials, contact the Circulation Desk at 612-330-1017, or refdesk@augsburg.edu.
