Getting Started Searching

  1. Start in the library catalog
    You will find books at Williams, and a selection of newspapers, magazines and scholarly articles
     If you need more sources than what you found in the catalog then 
  2. Expand your searches in Worldcat to find more books to borrow from other libraries and  use specialized databases to find newspaper articles and government documents

When searching the library databases, you may come across articles from journals to which we do not subscribe and books which we do not own. In this case, you will need to request that we borrow copies from other libraries through the interlibrary loan service.  Keep in mind the borrowing from other libraries takes time, so plan in advance!
