Auerbach, Susan. (2010). Beyond Coffee with the Principal: Toward Leadership for Authentic School-Family Partnerships. Journal of School Leadership 20 (6): 728-757.

...conduct a Journal Title search in the Library Catalog using the title of the journal - Journal of School Leadership. The results of this search indicate that Kresge Library owns this journal in print (4th floor: LB 2805 .J68) and online from 2007 to the present.

Interlibrary Loan (aka ILLiad) & Macomb
If you are a student at Macomb, you can request that OU books be sent to Macomb. Just log into ILLiad, and fill out the user information form indicating that you are a DistanceEd student. Then OU books will be sent to Macomb - call 248-370-2132 to determine where the books will be left.

Additionally, if OU does not have a book or article that you need, you can request that the article be sent to you via Interlibrary Loan. If the GET IT link indicates that we do not have an online version of the article, then as Macomb students you can request that OU print articles and non-OU articles be sent to you. Log into ILLiad and fill out the user information form to make this process easier!
