I'm Samantha Godbey, the Education Librarian here at UNLV. I used to be a high school English teacher myself, so I love working 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 citations, and just about any other library- or research-related question you can think of. I'm here to help.
I've put together this guide to support your work in the the first and second year seminars offered by the College of Education. Please explore, and let me know if you have any questions. You can reach me via email or schedule a phone or virtual appointment using the "Schedule Appointment" link below my picture.
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.
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 multimedia design lab, and more. Most education-related books can be found on the 4th floor.
Located in the Carlson Education Building, the TDRL 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).
