“Books and Media” under “Resources.” Books at the branch campus libraries can be
sent to the main campus through Intercampus Loan.
To find journal articles, click “Articles and Journals” listed under “Resources.”
Choose the database you wish to use to find journal articles on your specific subject.
Ask the reference librarian if you need assistance in choosing which database to
search. Or, you can search all of the library’s resources using “Quick Search” (in the
middle section of the library home page).
Students, faculty, and staff who wish to obtain books not owned by Gill Library or
photocopies of journal articles not held by Gill Library can obtain them using the ILLiad
Interlibrary Loan system. To access the ILLiad system, click “ILLiad” under “Services.”
If you need help creating a bibliography or managing your research you can use
“RefWorks.” To access Refworks, click “RefWorks” under “Resources.” For those not
familiar with RefWorks, it is highly recommended that you register and attend the “Intro
to RefWorks” workshop.

corner of the library home page under “Search Other Libraries”).
