From Bookstores: Order books online from Amazon
Books, Barnes and Noble or Yahoo Books
Page. Also use Books
in Print sources as needed.
Interlibrary Loan: If we do not own a particular book
or article you need, we will borrow it for you from another library
through Interlibrary Loan.
Reference resources include encyclopedias,
dictionaries, handbooks, companions and other materials you use to "refer"
to. Use these resources for background information on a topic. Reference
books can be found in the reference area, main level. Many books, encyclopedia,
guides and other resources are now online and can be accessed from the Humanities
Reference Resources Web page.
To find articles on
your topic you need to use Article
Databases. Each database usually covers a group of subject
related journals. Search by subject or keyword in these databases. Use
your WSU login for off-campus access.
To access electronic journals, go
to the Electronic Journals
page. Additional electronic journals are listed within other,
more specific, Humanities Research
BROWSING CURRENT PERIODICALS
Current magazines and journals can be browsed in the Current
Periodicals Area on the Main level. Bound volumes of older
issues are found upstairs in the periodicals stacks.
Here are some WWW sites to get you started. Most of these will take
you to other links, so explore!
