There are many ways to locate books for research purposes, both in the collections at Western Libraries and in other libraries. Despite the growth in e-books, not all books are available in digital formats.
Western Libraries collects e-books and print books, both of which can be found via Western's Library Catalogue (Omni). You can search by a known title or author, or by keyword or subject searching.
Western’s Library Catalogue uses the subject headings from the Library of Congress. We acknowledge that some subject headings contain offensive or discriminatory language. Please see Problematic Language in the Library Catalogue: Statement of Acknowledgement.
Digital libraries offer access to books in multiple formats. In certain cases, you have the option of downloading them as pdf files for personal use.
