What's new at the WNC Library?

The library team at WNC has been hard at work streamlining and updating our systems to make your experiences using the library services smoother. Here are some of the changes we have made:

- An updated database directory. The Database A-Z list has been updated to include ABC-CLIO, a fantastic resource for historical research. In addition, Gale Opposing Viewpoints in Context and Gale Virtual Reference Library are no longer listed under "G," they can be located in "O" and "V," respectively.

- A new catalog interface: we have a new platform for searching the catalog, making it easier to find what you need in one convenient place. We have created this guide to help explain how to use the new catalog and its features.

- Students will automatically be registered for a library patron account meaning no more library cards or signing up. 

- Receipts and library notifications will be sent to your WNC email address.
