Did you know that we have access to:

eBooks and AudioBooks
  • OverDrive: every Library card holder has an OverDrive account automatically created, for free! Get access to over 29,000 eBook and 10,000 Audiobook titles using your library card number (the number on the back of your Mountaineer card)
  • Catalog: search the catalog and select your format (eBook or Audiobook) 
  • eBook Central: check out this Proquest database full of ebooks
  • Springer eBooks: 40,000 Springer eBooks
Journals and Journal Articles

You can also get help with classwork:

  • Class Guides: customized content for individual classes; you can also check out the types of resources used in classes you're interested in
  • Citations: see some basic information and examples for citations 
  • Database list: Western OneSearch is not comprehensive and does not include all of our holdings. For more in-depth research, try sorting our database list by "subject" and choosing a specialized database to search through
