ES 601: Environmental Science Capstone

This libguide is designed to support ES601 students as they complete their library assignment and annotated bibliography.


For Today:

  • Revisit academic search tools
  • Use Mendeley for importing, saving, and sharing references among one another
  • Collect at least 5 references of primary or secondary sources published within the last 10 years by the end of class

For the rest of the semester: 

  • Continue to find information
    • For your annotated bibliography
    • For your project design
    • For your in-class presentations
    • For your final project
  • Read and evaluate what you find:
    • You don't need to save everything that shows up
    • You don't need to fully read everything you save
    • You don't need to use everything you read

How do I request an item through ILL?

The library's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service is integrated into WISE, providing a convenient process for borrowing items that Westminster College does not own or have direct access to.  It is recommended that you create an ILL account before you begin your search, but not required. 

To use ILL in WISE:

  • When you find an item that says Held by other libraries worldwide (instead of Held by Westminster College McGill Library), click on the title link for the item.
  • Under Check Availability, click on the navy blue button: I Need This! (ILL)
  • You will be taken to a new page and prompted to log in with your ILL user name and password (you can create your account at this stage if you have not already done so).
  • Once you have logged in, you will be taken to an ILL form, where all of the item information should auto-populate for you. Enter the borrowing purpose at the bottom of the form and submit.
