On this Veterans Day, IU East joins the nation in pausing to thank our brave soldiers, from generations past and present, for their service and courage under fire. But of course, we are especially proud of those students and employees of our own university who have defended us. And we want to give back to you – whether it’s through the Student Veterans Organization or striving to be classed as a Military Friendly School, IU East hopes to pay back a portion of what you’ve given us.
But perhaps there is no better way to honor someone than to understand them. Perhaps you’ll want to write a term paper on a military conflict. Perhaps you’ll want to learn about post-traumatic stress disorder, in order to understand or care for a friend suffering from such a condition. Or perhaps you’re a veteran yourself, and you need to know about the opportunities that are available to you.
The library subscribes to many general databases and ebooks with information useful to veterans and their families, but also subscribes to several specialized resources, including Military & Government Collection, which focuses on current military-related news; ProQuest Military Collection, which covers modern military topics from Aeronautics to Homeland Security to Army Engineering; and Military and Intelligence, which covers academic journals about past and present conflicts.
Regardless, we are grateful for your courage and look forward to meeting your information needs.
