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. It also lets me to introduce myself.
In the coming weeks, you'll learn about many other gateways to the library when you work though the module: Introduction to Academic Information, Information Seeking, and Evaluation. I know you will find it very helpful for this course and beyond.
I wish you all the best in the course and please don't hesitate to connect at any time about conducting research here at UWaterloo.
I'm happy to assist.

UWaterloo's vast collection of materials is available through Omni, the Library's catalogue. Use Omni's advanced search and 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 pickup services. It's the Library's curbside and mail option while the "stacks" are closed because of the pandemic.
