Welcome to WCU Libraries Online Guides!

Yes, the interface for our research guides and our database lists has been updated! We hope you're going to like it. You can use the Search to find guides related to your subject interest - or just browse the list below, "By Subject." Or you can select "By Type" to filter by Course Guides, General Information, or Subject listings - or "By Owner" to find guides by your favorite librarian! (FYI: Although it displays "By Group," we have no Groups yet - maybe soon). On the right is a list of Featured Guides, and you can "Go to A-Z List" of the Libraries' databases.

A-Z Database List
Full list of Databases the library subscribes to, including trial access.

Access to Library Databases

To access the library databases, log in with your WCU username & password - or your library barcode number on the back of your RAM ID card.

Graduate or distance students without ID cards should be able to access the databases with your WCU username/password, but you will need a barcode authentication number for using E-Z Borrow interlibrary loan.  To obtain one of these numbers, please fill out this form.

Still having problems?  Contact us via text, chat, email or phone.

Need Research Help?

Select a Subject from the list at left to locate a librarian subject expert - or contact a Reference Librarian by chat, email, text or phone from our Ask-A-Librarian page (subject experts are also listed here). 

Not sure when we're available?  Go here for current Reference Desk and Libraries hours.
