Functionality has been restored to the library’s Journals A-Z list! Formerly a favorite resource, Journals A-Z allows you to look up known journal titles to check the library holdings. Our user guide on how to manually look up journals in Search@UW still exists and will be maintained as a back-up to the journals A-Z listing. Journals A-Z is listed on the library website directly underneath the Search@UW search box or you can always find it on the top menu bar in Search@UW.
Gale Researcher can help you find high-quality sources like streaming videos, images, topic summaries, and original content written by experts. Topics covered include: American Literature, Economics, Psychology, Western Civilization, British Literature, Philosophy, Sociology, World History, Criminal Justice, Political Science, and U.S. History.

The Cofrin Library is no longer checking out clickers, and they are being replaced by a new licensed program you can access on a mobile phone or other device.
Fake, hoax, satire, or just plain misleading, how can you tell if a news story is accurate? The ability to critically evaluate the news and information you come into contact with everyday is an essential skill to learn to be an informed citizen. With help from our friends at Indiana University East, the Cofrin Library has gathered tips and techniques for spotting misleading or outright fake news into our Evaluating News guide.
