As such, you are entitled to the same library services and resources that on-campus students have. If you attended a different college or university in the past the library services you receive with us may be a little different.
The LIT tutorials are designed to help you grow as a researcher and writer while at WWU. Modules include: getting started, finding and evaluating sources, drafting and revising, proofreading and editing, and documenting and citing sources.
Do your research in your bunny slippers! Most of the resources you will need are available online. Things like print books can be mailed to your home (applies to students in off-campus programs only). We cover the cost of shipping items to you and you cover the cost of sending them back.
Start your research from the Libraries tab in MyWestern or the Libraries homepage so you are getting access through our subscriptions. If we don’t have access to an article you need we can usually get a copy for you through inter-library loan.
Don't say I didn't warn you! It's 50¢/day for books and $1/day for videos. Save your money and renew your books online or by calling Circulation at (360) 650-3084. When borrowing from the collection at your location ask the staff what the policies are for renewing books.
Your Western ID card can be used as a library card for many of the regional academic libraries. You will have to register as a guest patron before using those libraries. Once you are registered you can have materials for pickup sent there. Local public and community college libraries can also be good resources.
