To find books in the collection, use the WKU Libraries catalog. You can search by the Title, the Author/Creator, Subject, or do a general keyword search. The catalog allows you to do Boolean searches (AND, OR, NOT) and specify whether your search results should only "contain" your search terms, or "start with" or be "exact" with your search. You can limit results by Publication Date, Language, Material Type (Books, Articles, Journal Titles, Images, Audiovisual Materials, or anything), or "Search Scope" - whether you want to search everything, just the catalog, view only online resources, search only EBSCOhost, search only KenCat, or search only TopSCHOLAR.
While you can search for books and articles using the One-Search catalog, it is recommended you use the databases below when searching for articles to ensure your results are comprehensive and manageable.
