In order to find print reference sources (i.e. physical books on the 1st floor of Hamersly), you will need to search for them using Primo. To do this:
1. Go to the library homepage
2. Type your topic and/or the work title/author into the Primo search box in the middle of the page:
3. Specify that you want to search in WOU-only by selecting the WOU radio button under the search box, then hit enter or click the black magnifying glass search button.
4. Now you have your initial set of results and will need to narrow them down using the limiters on the left of the page (for more on using these limiters, also called facets, watch this tutorial). Under "Refine My Results" scroll down to the "Physical Location" list and click "Reference." (Note: you might have to click the "More options" link to see the "Reference" option).
Below are some examples that are relevant to this class, but there are many more that you can find by searching using the above process!
Do you have an article citation from a reference page? Get the article by using Find It @ WOU. The potential results are:
We often use bibliographies to discover works that the scholar referenced. These cited sources are necessarily older than the article.
How about reversing the process? Use Google Scholar to discover more recent works which cite the article or book you have.
Type the title of your article into the Google Scholar search box:
Use the Cited by link at the bottom of the article's entry:
Links to Google Scholar throughout the library's web pages are specially coded to tie in with our owned and licensed collections and to Interlibrary Loan when necessary, via the Find it at WOU link. Or, rather than hunting down the link every time, you can setting your Google Scholar preferences to connect with the library:
Simply using the scholar.google.com address without setting your preferences will cut you off from library access.
