This "quick start" guide will help you find the resources about Library & Information Science needed to complete your course assignments and research projects. 

  • When completing assignments, you may be required to find journal articles by searching databases.  

  • The Scholarly Articles tab has relevant database suggestions that can be searched to find full-text articles related to LIS. A list of relevant LIS journals is also included. 

  • The Books tab leads to a short list of books, including print books and ebooks available through Western Libraries on OMNI. Use the library catalogue to find more LIS resources. 

  • The Associations tab leads to a few examples of useful professional resources published by various LIS associations that will help with understanding specific topics within LIS.
