Academic Libraries Supporting the Research Needs of Student Veterans: A Bibliography

Rebecca Arzola


The number of Student Veterans entering higher education is growing especially after the passing of the new Post-9/11 GI Bill in 2008. Veterans are using their educational benefits and transitioning from a military to civilian environment. In order to meet the needs of student veterans, administrators, faculty and staff are trying to make available support services for veterans. There is a range of services that can be provided and the library is one that can provide both a physical and virtual environment to support veterans. Although not always mentioned in articles on student veteran transition, it is important that libraries be aware of this population of students to support their research needs. This annotated bibliography looks at fifteen resources that discuss the issues of Student Veterans and their transition to higher education.
