Welcome to the PR 203 Libguide! This page is designed to help you find the resources you need to complete your secondary research assignments.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Interlibrary Loan (or ILL) is a free service available to students. It allows you to borrow materials that Westminster College does not own, including articles, books, DVDs, and more.
Search WISE, or try some of the suggested databases listed on this page to get started on your research. Here are a couple of additional tips to help you with your searching:
- Start simple. Try starting out using the broadest possible search terms for your topic. This will give you an idea about what is available through any particular resource. You can add additional search terms and other limiters to narrow your results later on.
- Avoid sentences. Databases and indexes hate sentence structure. Take out all of the unnessecary words and type in only the terms essential to your search. The exceptions to this is the word AND. Databases love AND, so go ahead and use it as much as you want!
- Don't be frustrated. If you find broken links or other technological problems, or if you can't seem to find anything useful, don't spend hours being frustrated. That's what Librarians are for! Come and ask for help!
