Welcome New and Returning Students, Faculty, and Staff
Western Libraries is here to help you start the new academic year off right by offering students, faculty, and staff a wide range of services and support.
Western students can get help with research, reading, and writing assistance from the Hacherl Research & Writing Studio, as well as math and science GUR tutoring from the Tutoring Center, both onsite in the library or online. You can also access online tutorials, e-books, articles and databases, and other video resources at any time. And, you can borrow books and materials and access supplemental course readings for your classes that your instructors place on reserve. When inside the library buildings, there are a variety of spaces to fit your needs, whether you are looking for a quiet spot to study, or you are in search of a place to collaborate. Check out “Find a Space” to locate your perfect spot!
