IT research tools and services at K-State

K-Staters who need to do some research will want to know about these services supported by either wholly or in part by Information Technology Services. 

  • K-State Survey (survey.ksu.edu)
    Faculty/staff and authorized students can use the university survey system. It’s powered by Qualtrics, a comprehensive survey tool with more than 90 question types, simplified reporting tools, online training modules, a library of surveys to peruse, and more. (Note that Axio Survey is being shut down Jan. 1, 2014.)
  • K-State Research Exchange (K-REx) (krex.ksu.edu)
    K-REx is the university’s institutional repository, which is supported by K-State Libraries and Information Technology Services. It provides free, online access to scholarly materials created by students and faculty, including faculty journal articles and conference papers, and student theses, dissertations, and reports. Research materials stored there can be found via the K-REx website and Google, Google Scholar, and other web search engines.
  • Electronic Theses, Dissertations, and Reports (ETDRs) (k-state.edu/grad/etdr)
    The ETDR website covers how to produce and submit an ETDR, including formatting requirements; how to use timesaving ETDR templates in Microsoft Word and LaTeX; and Word tips and troubleshooting on both Windows and Macs. Contact the IT Help Desk at helpdesk@k-state.edu for consulting assistance on ETDRs and Word issues.
