!!! What if the Library does not have what I want?

If the Library does not hold or provide access to a particular resource that you need you can probably get it through our Interlibrary Loan service. This service us allows to request books, journal articles etc from other libraries so you can access them. You can access the Interlibrary Loan page via the "place/tack interloan" link in the key tasks menu on all the library webpages. See the [[http://www.waikato.ac.nz/library/services/interlibrary-loan/|Library's Interlibrary Loan page]] for a detailed description of how it all works.

!!!Why should I use the Library?

We all love Google, but not everything is yet available online. Even when information is online, you will find that much of it is hidden behind subscription databases and passwords. To do the kind of scholarly research that might impress your lecturers, you are going to need to also use books and journal articles, sometimes online and sometimes in print. The best way of accessing these is often through the library catalogue or via the many subscription databases that the library has access to.
