For University Administrators

Many graduate students are truly on their own for the first time in graduate school; making their own schedule and starting their own research. Successful students use their university resources to get ahead and GradShare lets you reach out to digital natives in their own environment. Our question and answer forums provide insight on topics that students are unable or unwilling to ask in person, while Expert Advice provides essential information on demand.

GradShare is a free tool that connects you to your students by highlighting campus services and online resources. We work with Graduate School Deans, Coordinators and other student services representatives set up your account and help you introduce GradShare to your community.

You can:

  • Share context sensitive links that match up with community topics.
  • Add university programs and services like the writing center and research office so that graduate students know where to go for help.
  • Link to online policies, guides, and events.

For Librarians

Graduate students know that the library is a great resource for completing their coursework and their research, but they don't always start their search on the library website. Web searches and public resources are second nature to digital natives, so GradShare lets you reach them where they are.

GradShare is a free tool that connects you to information seekers by highlighting library databases and tools. We provide an administrative account that lets you add important resources and categorize them to show up alongside appropriate topics and subject areas.

You can:

  • Leverage a highly visible, multinational website that's indexed by major search engines.
  • Experiment with our resource recommendation service.
  • Pick the most important resources or add your library subject guides.
