Incorporate quality and current references into your assignments. Start by using Omni, the Library's catalogue

Omni's advanced search let's you apply filters that suit your research parameters. Limit for example, to: "Waterloo online resources" then enter keywords that describe your topic.

Prefer print? Check out Book services. It's the Library's curbside and mail option while the "stacks" are closed because of the pandemic.

Jane Forgay, Librarian for this course


This page is just one of many "gateways" to the UWaterloo Library. It's meant to give you quick access to Omni, the Library's catalogue and all that it contains.

In the coming weeks, you'll learn about many other gateways to library collections when you work though the module: Introduction to Academic Information, Information Seeking, and Evaluation.

I wish you all the best in the course and please don't hesitate to connect at any time. I'm happy to assist. For example, I can:

  •  help you find additional sources to fill in gaps
  • review and comment on references you are thinking of using in your assignments
  • help with a tricky citation
