The Library Catalog, accessible through the library's website at library.wlu.edu, serves as a portal to the library's books, ebooks, journals, and multimedia content. It searches across and within much of the libraries holdings, spanning print materials and our databases. Because it searches so much, expect significantly more results than you would find in a topical, format, or discipline specific database.
These databases might prove appropriate for research on literary topics. Of course, the best database for your particular need depends upon your research question. See full list of library databases.
The following databases are more general in nature.
The Library can't own or subscribe to every piece of research ever created...that's why we have interlibrary loan!
If you need to use an article or book not in the library's collection, place an interlibrary loan request. The University Library can borrow materials from libraries across the globe.
