MAT students

Library services for students in the Master in the Art of Teaching (MAT) program include:

  • A reference librarian assigned to answer your questions and help guide your research
  • Document delivery and interlibrary loan
  • Access to education-related books, articles, and websites (below)


Searching the library catalog will lead you to thousands of books within your field, hand-picked by the Marygrove librarians. If you are a distance student or can't visit the Marygrove campus, your reference librarian can help you find books on your research topic at libraries near you. Just ask your librarian!


Most of these resources require a Marygrove username and password.
