Based on this information, identify some databases or research guides that may be helpful to you during your project. WKU Libraries can assist you with identifying resources through subject specific library liaisons, and research and subject guides, and WorldCat. You can also use the One Search Box, at wku.edu/library, for simple and convenient access to many of the articles available through WKU Libraries. Additional resources, including books and articles, are available through interlibrary loan. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 800-922-9585.
