Use the Library's Advanced Search to find books on your topic in the WMU collection.
If you already know the title or author, use the pull-down arrow to select Title or Author.
When looking for books by topic, enter your keyword(s) into the search boxes.
SEARCH TIP: If you are using a phrase in your search, be sure and put it in quotation marks, e.g., "middle east"
SEARCH TIP: Use an asterisk * to pick up variant endings of a word, e.g., immigra* will retrieve immigrant, immigrants, immigration, etc.
Use these reference databases to get the "big picture" on your topic, and to get some book and journal references, too. Think of these as an alternative to the Wikipedia.
