Duquesne Scholarship Collection

Make your publications, data, and other scholarly and creative works more widely available to researchers and other readers through the Duquesne Scholarship Collection (DSC). If you want to include your work in DSC, learn about publishing a journal at Duquesne, or ask questions about how DSC can work for you, please contact the Digital Scholarship Librarian at

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

Librarians, in partnership with the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE), can assist you with SoTL research, such as finding journals and sample SoTL articles in your discipline.


Keep track of your research citations more easily with EndNote. Export references directly from research databases into EndNote. Format a bibliography in APA, MLA or other citation styles.
