Counselor Education: Video Shorts

Video Shorts

Below are some short (5-15 minute) videos walking you through some of the basic resources the University and Nielsen Library offer. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to your Faculty, or to the Library Liaison for your department: Amanda Langdon, or 719-587-7173.

IMPORTANT NOTE! Please read!

Summer 2024 will see some significant changes to EBSCO, our primary Library Discovery platform. Once these changes have been fully implemented and understood by library staff, the following videos will be updated/re-recorded, but that process will take some time. Much of the information should remain the same; however, the pages and search options are going to look considerably different. If you need help navigating either the current or the new EBSCO interfaces, please reach out to Amanda Langdon ( or 719-587-7173), or the Nielsen Library Reference Desk ( or 719-587-7879), and we will help however possible.

Resources for PhD Candidates

This video is to support Ph.D. students who are engaging in research, whether it is for an assignment or as you are working on your dissertation. It provides information on how to improve your searchers and how to get in touch with the library if you have any questions and how the library can help you search for information based on your research topic(s).
