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.
