New Employees - Welcome!

Being a new employee means a lot coming at you at once. The intention of this research guide is to introduce Learning Commons resources & services and give you reason to visit us often as well as having a reference point to come back to at anytime.

Research Consultations & Library Instruction Sessions

There are a variety of services that students, faculty, and staff can request. These include:

Interlibrary Loan

Newspaper, articles, papers iconInterlibrary Loan is designed to provide materials that are not available in the Franklin University collection or from other OhioLINK libraries.

Upon receipt of request, we will identify other libraries that own the items needed, ask to borrow them, and then notify borrowers when they are available.

Library Liaisons


While any of us can help you, each librarian is responsible for specially serving one or more departments. To find the librarian assigned to your department, take a look at our liaison research guide. 

Search Google Scholar

To customize your Google Scholar settings, find Franklin University in the settings area by searching in the Library links area. You can also add OhioLINK to your preferences. You will still need to log in to access e-books and databases when off-campus.

Grammarly & Online Writing Review

Grammarly screenshotGrammarly won't be able to provide feedback or give you the quality feedback you'd expect from an experienced, human writing instructor. Instead, it's an automated proofreader and your personal grammar coach that instantly checks your sentences for grammar, punctuation, and style. Register for a free account using your Franklin University student email address.

The Online Writing Review service from the Learning Commons includes reviewing student writing for critical issues including structure and coherence.  


We can help you with your copyright questions, whether it's about using something in a course, a professional presentation, or something else. See this guide for more info, email with questions, or complete this form for an evaluation of whether or not a particular use is considered "fair use."
