I'm Samantha Godbey, the Education Librarian here at UNLV. I used to be a high school English teacher myself, so I'm very excited that I get to work with the College of Education. As your librarian, I'm here to help you navigate the many resources and services we offer through the UNLV Libraries.
I can help you with locating materials, identifying search strategies, refining research topics, dealing with APA, and just about any other library- or research-related question you can think of. I'm here to help.
Hopefully you'll meet me soon in one of your classes, but feel free to stop by and say hi. My office is on the first floor of Lied Library, but I'm often over at the Teacher Development and Resources Library (TDRL) on the first floor of CEB.
I've put together this guide to support your work in COE 102 and 202, the first and second year seminars offered by the College of Education. Please explore, bookmark it, and let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
There are five libraries on the UNLV campus. If you end up majoring in education, you will likely use two more than the others. You can access the UNLV Libraries databases and online resources from either, and you can activate your RebelCard at either library.
Located on E Harmon Ave, Lied is the main campus library. Here you'll find access to our digital and physical collections, a variety of study spaces, a media lab, and more. Most education-related books can be found on the 4th floor.
Located in the Carlson Education Building, the TDRL (formerly the CML) exists as a resource for teachers. It includes resources such as professional materials (books on lesson planning, classroom management, etc.); collections of children's literature, from picture books to young adult; and a teacher prep room (with a large-scale printer for posters).
