Guides: How to Use...


Research@UWW, the Library's online discovery tool, helps you locate materials physically housed in the library, as well as titles available in our online book collections, and many of our databases. Most of the Library's online databases are designed to help locate periodical (journal, magazine and newspaper) articles, but some also help find statistics, book chapters, dissertations, curriculum guides and other materials. The librarians have created guides to highlight features of these resources that make research that much easier.
