Introduction to Library Research at Western

An overview of services and materials provided by Western Libraries, including a look at the library catalogue, locating materials in the library, requesting items from other institutions (Interlibrary Loan), using the library from off-campus, recognizing plagiarism and copyright issues, and “just what do librarians do, anyway?”
