Systems Engineering Dashboard: Welcome


Welcome to the Department of Systems Engineering'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 librarian is Erich Purpur.

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

Erich 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.  Erich can meet with you in-person or online via Zoom.

Sign Up for Library events

Sign up for Library orientations, workshops, and events with our online calendar. UVA Library programming is offered in-person and online.

Search for academic articles

Academic databases contain peer-reviewed articles, scientific papers, reports, and more. These are the most used databases for your field of study.

Help me with APA citations

For most courses in EHD our preferred citation style is American Psychological Association (APA): 7th Edition. APA Style is used by writers in many disciplines around the world for concise, powerful, and persuasive scholarly communication.
