FIG #16: Electing a President: Library Resources: Finding Books

Finding Books

First check to see if what you need is in Western's Online Catalog.  From the OneSearch drop-down menu, 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 finding the Services tab..

Set up your ILLiad account once and it is your interlibrary loan account for your academic career at Western.





OneSearch is Western Library's new catalog.  It allows you to examine in one search:

* The Library's books, journal titles, government publications, films, etc.

* The holdings of 36 other Washington and Oregon academic libraries.

* Many (but not all) of our periodical databases.

Here is a 2-minute video on how to use OneSearch.
