What TEC's need to know about the Library

Course #: EU (Teacher Education)

Getting Started

Our Library Catalogue (library.wlu.ca/omni)

Your OneCard is your Library Card for borrowing materials such as books, education kits, curriculum materials, videos, etc. For print books, the new loan period is 120 days or one whole semester. Usertags have been inactivated in the early rollout of Omni, so to search for a kit with magnets in it you will need to do an advanced search, where the title contains magnetic and the resource type is a kit.

Our subject area page (library.wlu.ca/services/subject/education)

This page guides you through our Education Collection, which includes full-text electronic and print journals, e-books, research databases, reference materials, multimedia, and curriculum materials to support your academic studies and classroom teaching.
