Teaching Assistants and the Library: Books/Articles

This guide details the various ways teaching assistants can help their faculty and their students use the library.

Finding articles

You can use the search bar on the library's website to look for articles and other materials across multiple platforms. This guide will help you learn the basics of the library search tool.

If you prefer to search individual databases for articles you can choose one from our A-Z database list. From the A-Z list you can then filter databases by subject, type and vendor.


Interlibrary loan

Interlibrary loan is a free service that allows you to  borrow books or request articles from other institutions. Learn more about this service here.
