Eventually all students, staff and faculty must convert their knowledge and ideas into a presentable format, whether it be digital, video, audio or on paper.  The @One Service Desk is the premier help center on campus, with employees trained to assist with the most popular production and presentation software and tools.  There is also support for simple NetID and wireless issues, one on one tutoring for some software titles, as well as a non-profit poster printing service.  If you’d like your work to be presented in any format, visit the @One Service Desk for a free consultation.

Welcome Graduate Students

Welcome to graduate student life at UNR! We at the UNR Libraries recognize that the transition to graduate student & apprentice scholar is a significant one. We have resources to help you make those shifts as student, scholar, and instructor.

This guide is a work in progress, so please check back over the course of the semester as new needs arise.

If there's information you'd like to see on this guide, please use the comments option below, or contact your library liaison directly.
