Handouts for Accessing WKU Libraries' Funded Electronic Resources

The following is a list of handouts on how to access/use the WKU Libraries' funded electronic resources. Passwords are available only to WKU faculty, staff and students, who can ask for them by calling the Reference Desk at (270) 745-6125 or contacting the WKU Libraries' Web Reference Service.
