Leadership Studies Capstone Research Guide

Welcome

This is the LibGuide for the Leadership Studies Capstone course.

Popular Library Services

Quick Search is the equivalent to the library's catalog, except that it includes much more.  However, that's where you want to go if you're looking for books (both online and print), journals, media, and other materials the library owns.  Spice up your searches with Boolean terms AND, OR, NOT and truncation or getting the full possible endings for shortened words using a * . Limit your search so results must include terms you want to see by writing "term" in quotation marks like so. 

Looking for a specific book or article based on a citation or even just a title and author? See if the library has it with our Citation Linker also known as Fetch Item !

  • Borrow books, journal articles, newspaper microfilm, A/V items, dissertations, theses, and many other items from libraries around the world! 
  • Free document delivery of up to 30 journal articles per calendar year scanned from ISU print collections, straight to your inbox!

Can I get textbooks through Interlibrary Loan?

  • Yes, but we don’t recommend it.  Books can be recalled from any library (including the ISU library) at any time, so there’s no guarantee you can keep a book for the whole semester.
  • Textbooks on Course Reserve will not be requested.

How long does it take?

  • Articles are generally delivered between 24 to 72 hours.
  • Books or other physical items are generally delivered within 3 to 15 days, depending on the item’s location and the shipping method used by the lending library. Items shipped internationally or that are difficult to borrow may take more time.
