The Library Online

library computers The Library's website is an ideal place to find information for your research because it was built with that purpose in mind! While anyone can browse through the website, only WSU students, faculty & staff have access to many paid scholarly resources.

Strengths:
  • The library pays for access to electronic databases, fulltext journals, and ebooks 
  • Information has been carefully chosen and reviewed by librarians 
  • The information is organized
Weaknesses:
  • May not include the most current information on some topics
  • The amount of information may be limited for some topics
  • Fulltext is not available for all articles (but those we don't own can be ordered through Interlibrary Loan)
