Librarians Robin and Kelly outside their offices

Robin Rank and Kelly Frost would be happy to sit and help you at any stage of your research. We can help you brainstorm keywords, navigate the databases, track down articles, and so much more!

Waldo library

You may access Western's online resources when you are in Waldo Library. You must use one of their computers.

  • Ask at the Service Desk (to the left as you walk in) for the guest username/password. 

Printing is difficult for guests, so it is best to bring a flashdrive and download articles you want to keep.

Reference Sources

Before you start a big research project make sure you do some background research. Read textbooks, encyclopedias, and even check out relevant Wikipedia pages.

Reference sources can help

  • determine the scope of your project,
  • learn new keywords,
  • and become generally familiar with the topic.
