EHD Dashboard: Welcome

Welcome to the School of Education and Human Development's library dashboard. The dashboard provides quick links to the resources you need to succeed in your course. Whether you are online or on-Grounds, UVA Library services and support are available to all students. 

Your Librarian

Your EHD librarian is Ashley Hosbach.

Each school at UVA is assigned a research librarian. Connect with Ashley for help with your assignments. This service is available to all EHD students, and meeting with a librarian early in your research process can help you save time and get a better grade.

Ashley can help with: learning how to use the Library online, brainstorming your research topic, developing your search strategy, capstone/thesis/dissertation planning, identifying relevant databases/journals for your literature reviews, tracking down resources, and citation management.  Ashley can meet with you in-person or online via Zoom.
