Subject and Course Guides

One of the services the Library provides is custom subject and course guides. These guides are created by ADU librarians to help you find information. Each guide looks at a specific subject or course and lists selected resources, such as books, videos, and websites, as well as tips on how to locate additional resources in the library and online.

The guides are not comprehensive compendiums of information. They do not list every resource the library has on a subject. Instead, they provide a broad overview of a subject and lay out a path to follow for additional research.

Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our guides, such as the occupational therapy guide, the math guide, or the guide to the Philosophy of Healthcare. When you have a research project or need to learn more about a topic, use a guide to lead you through the maze of information. And if we don't have a guide for your subject or course, you can ask us to make one.

Personal Whiteboards

The power of a dry erase board, now in the palm of your hand!

The Library's personal whiteboards give you a 9 x 12 inch board you can use anywhere. These whiteboards are the perfect size for one or two people and work great for chemistry equations, math homework, tic-tac-toe, or sending messages across a room (if you write large enough; some jumping up and down and waving may be required).

Each whiteboard comes with a marker, eraser, and carrying bag. The library has 10 boards available, and you can check one out for up to 4 hours at a time.

Don't miss out on this fantastic offer. Visit the Library today!

Get Active with the Library's Sports Equipment

Are you spending your days sitting in class, sitting in the NESS Cafe, and sitting in the Library? Then it's time to add some action to your routine.

Activity is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. It's one of the eight core wellness principles of Florida Hospital's CREATION Health program. Activity keeps you healthy, and it can also help you excel in class:

"The mind and the body are intimately connected. A fit mind promotes a fit body, and a fit body promotes a fit mind. In other words, you will get the best performance from your mind when you regularly exercise your body, and you will get more from your body when you regularly exercise your mind. It’s that simple."

See what else CREATION Health has to say about activity in this 20 minute video. Then stop by the Library and check out some of our sports equipment. We have a variety of options for outdoor fun: a football, a soccer ball, a bocce ball set, a Frisbee, a croquet set, and more.

Get our sports equipment, get out on campus, and get active.
