Library Orientation for Online Students

An introduction to using the resources and services provided by the Z. Smith Reynolds Library

Library Research Online

For many online students, finding and using scholarly sources in their papers is one of the more difficult things to do. Most of the scholarly content that you'll need for your papers and research projects costs significant amounts of money to subscribe to, and it is simply not available through a standard Google search. Luckily, the library provides access to you and to all WFU students. The resources shared below will help you find the best sources for your work.

The library maintains a number of helpful research guides in many disciplines. These guides contain contact information for that discipline's subject specialist librarian, links to helpful tools and databases, and often links to other helpful resources, like sources for statistics and other research. See the research guide for counseling:
