First check to see if what you need is in Western's Online Catalog. From the OneSearch drop-down menu, under "Books, Articles + More" choose "At WWU Only."
If it is not in the Western Libraries choose "WWU Libraries + Summit" from the drop-down menu. Summit materials you order will come in from Washington, Oregon or Idaho Libraries and will be available for pickup at the Circulation Desk.
If the item you need is not in Western Libraries or available from Summit libraries, you can order materials from outside the region using your ILLiad account, by choosing "Libraries Worldwide" from the drop-down menu.
Set up your ILLiad account once and it is your interlibrary loan account for your academic career at Western.
Use Google for artist's webpages and artist's statements. Search newspapers for current information and exhibitions.
