Have a paper due soon and no idea where to start your research?
Try the Research Guides on the Western Libraries website.
On the main Western Libraries page you can access the Research Guides by clicking the link located under the search bar [now under "Getting Started"] or by clicking the link located under the “Research [Tools]” tab.
There are over a hundred guides to help you get started with your research - one for each academic program at Western.
Each guide includes key resources for your program which librarians have hand-picked.
There are databases, encyclopedias, handbooks and more.
There are even research guides for specific courses.
If you still cannot find what you need you can contact your subject librarian listed at the top [now on the side] of each research guide....drop by the research help desk...or use the Ask a Librarian service.
