Your WatCard is your library card. Use it to sign out books, journals, reserve materials, and more! You will also need your WatCard barcode number for accessing the Library’s electronic resources from off campus. Additionally, your WatCard is your printing and photocopying card for use in all of the Library’s locations.
Save yourself time and aggravation during the assignment crunch. Attend a library workshop to learn the basics of university-level library research.
The Library’s subject guides are your starting point for research! We have over 70 subject guides to help direct you to the most important books, articles, and other information for your assignments.
Living off campus? Visiting your parents for the weekend? Before you start your research from off campus, remember to “Connect from Home” on the Library’s website using your WatCard barcode and last name. This will give you access to the millions of articles, e-books, and other electronic resources available through the Library’s website (the stuff you’d never find for free using Google).
Don’t get stuck! If you need help, contact a librarian via IM, email, phone, or at our research help desks. Did you know that there’s also a librarian for every subject area? Learn who your librarians are and don’t hesitate to contact them with questions too!
