Not your old encyclopedia! Try our new database World
We now subscribe to the database World Book Academic. This tool
is more than a traditional encyclopedia digitized for online
use. World Book Academic is a comprehensive reference tool that includes encyclopedia, multimedia, e-book,
and primary source databases.
You can search alphabetically by keywords, select from subject
lists or use their collections (biographies, primary source
documents, etc.). For ideas on researching you can access their
Research 101 tool for help structuring how you'll find the
evidence your instructors request to support your academic work.
The most exciting thing about
the catalog is that it allows you to
search our physical and virtual collections
at the same time. From
the Everything tab on the searchbox at the top of the
type keywords, click Go and your list of results will include everything from books or DVDs we own to articles from library subscribed databases. Stop by the Reference Desk if you need help or want to learn more about using WCL.
Some catalog options especially helpful for researchers are:
the ability to link to the catalog record for a resource (Permalink),
a save search button and export of bibliographic information to EasyBib for citation use. You can
even use the My library account tool to view a
list of library items you've checked out, titles you've
requested and any payments made/owed. Click
