Resource of the Month
Each month WSU Libraries' Department of Collection Development features
a "Resource of the Month" designed to highlight some of the library's new, interesting,
under-used, large, unique, or otherwise noteworthy collections and
resources. You can learn more about the "Resource of the Month" on
this website, from the display in the reference area, by attending a
workshop (if available), or by contacting the Reference Desk at
