Research and the Library: Using Resources WISely: LUCY

This tutorial and module will guide you through the process of library research.

Searching LUCY

LUCY, our online catalog, can be used to find both print and electronic resources from Willet Library. You can access the catalog by going to the Portal and clicking on the "Wesleyan College Library" link on the left, or by typing in LUCY also searches libraries worldwide. Resources not owned by Willet Library can be borrowed through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Click "Sign In" and use your Portal user name and password to access information about your account, including checkouts, due dates, and renewals

Use this link to LUCY to open a new window and search the following keywords:

sustainability AND "climate change"

LUCY searches libraries worldwide; to limit to only items provided by Wesleyan College click the box next to "Wesleyan College, Willet Memorial Library".

Results found are both electronic and print. Formats include books, journals, articles, and media. Use the limiters on the left to narrow your results further.

Once you have limited your search to Willet Library you will notice your results include books, journals, articles, and media. These results are both print and electronic. In order to check out a print resource, you will need to know the call number and location. The information needed looks like this:
