Course Reserves consist primarily of books owned by the Franklin University Library that are assigned as required or supplemental readings for Franklin courses, and/or Faculty members' personal copies of materials for their courses.


Databases will assist you in locating needed information to successfully complete your research and assignments. The information is organized in a manner for easy access as follows:

  • By Name - A comprehensive, alphabetical list of the databases available to Franklin University users through the library.
  • By Major/Course A listing of databases related to your particular major or course you are taking and provides relevant database recommendations based on the Franklin curriculum.
  • By Type - If you need a specific type of material, such as an eBook, a newspaper, or a dissertation, look here for a categorized list of databases.
  • Top 10 - These are your favorite databases based on usage statistics.
