Faculty scholarship strengthens Augsburg, and you have a team of “personal librarians” in the Lindell Library staff!
We are more than happy to help you with your research — tenure-track, tenured, or adjunct, it's all good. Please reach out to us.
In addition to supporting the scholarly needs of your research, we can support the financial needs as well.
We have books, links to websites, and even specialized funding databases like Foundation Directory Online that can help you locate funding, write proposals, and manage the whole grant process.
See our Grant Funding & Management Page for more information.
Idun is Augsburg's online repository of scholarly and creative work.
Begun in earnest in 2017, Idun is an archive that collects the intellectual endeavors of Augsburg faculty, students, and staff, and then (with permission) makes them available for download by scholars on campus and 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, in the case of a book or other copyright-complicated creation, link to information about it on another site.
Why “Idun”? Well, she's the Norse goddess of apples and immortality, and also the name of Augsburg's first library. Read more about her on the About Idun page, where you can also browse the repository's collections, disciplines, and authors.
If you have something to submit, use the Submit Research link. Your scholarship is our enrichment!
You can request books, CDs, and other materials from other libraries by clicking on the ‘Request through Interlibrary Loan’ button in the catalog record.
Note that online materials, such as e-books, are generally not available through interlibrary loan, because of license limitations from the publishers.
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.
For questions about orders, we make it easy to see 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 your friendly librarian.
In scholarly research, you are creating and using intellectual property. So you'd better know how your rights intersect with other scholars' rights under U.S. copyright law.
We recommend the University of Minnesota's comprehensive guide to copyright issues in scholarship.
We hope all your questions are answered in the U of M guide, but be sure to share any concerns you find with your liaison librarian.
