Find and Access

Step 1.

Authenticate using your last name and barcode information on your Watcard.

Alternatively, the Get access off campus link on the Library's homepage (see right navigation bar) is where you can login to access the library's eletronic services and resources.

Being connected is KEY to accessing journal articles, conference proceedings, e-books, and more. If you suspect you are not connected, check to see if the word 'proxy' is somewhere in the URL. If you are experiencing ANY problems with access to these electronic resources, please contact me, or submit a Connect from home problem report.
Responses will vary, but queries are often resolved within one or two business days.

Step 2.

If you search in Google Scholar, try authenticating first through the Get access off campus link, then find Google Scholar on the Research Databases page (see right navbar). All items available through the library's online subscriptions can be accessed through Google Scholar via the Get it ! @ Waterloo link.

Step 3.

Google Scholar is one resource amongst many. For a more comprehensive search I encourage you to explore the databases listed in this guide.For the full suite of resources relevant to Planning see the Research Databases for Planning.
