A writing guide, plagiarism tutorial, community toolbox and LGBT site are some of the online resources available to PhD students.

Purdue Online Writing Lab

The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University houses writing resources and instructional material that are provided as a free service of the Writing Lab at Purdue. Students, members of the community, and users worldwide will find information to assist with many writing projects. Teachers and trainers may use this material for in-class and out-of-class instruction.


The University of Texas Libraries posts a tutorial on plagiarism. What is plagiarism and how to avoid it.

Community Tool Box

The purpose of the Community Tool Box is to build capacity for community work—to make it easier for people to bring about change and improvement in their communities. The Community Tool Box connects people with resources for learning the many skills required for this work and applying this knowledge in diverse cultures and contexts.

Development of the Community Tool Box has been ongoing since 1994, and is a public service of the University of Kansas. The Community Tool Box is developed and managed by the Work Group for Community Health and Development at the University of Kansas, and partners nationally and internationally.

Community-Engaged Scholarship for Health is a free online mechanism for peer-reviewing, publishing and disseminating products of health-related community-engaged scholarship that are in forms other than journal articles. For example, videos, manuals, curricula and products developed through service-learning, community-based participatory research and other community-engaged work!

A list of key LGBT resources was shared by Shane Snowdon, Director of the Health and Aging Program, Human Rights Campaign Foundation. Visit  to explore HRC's Healthcare Equality Index,a unique resource providing free training & consulting in LGBT patient-centered care.
