Faculty and Staff Library Resources and Services

This guide gathers resources to assist faculty and staff in using Western's library tools, resources, and services.

Chat with a Librarian

In addition to being available in the Learning Commons and by email, your librarians provide a chat service embedded into all of our research guides, database list, and several of our databases. It's one of the most popular ways for students and faculty to reach out to us. 

To connect, click for the red bubble in the corner of your screen (if it's gray it means we're offline). Type your question and hit submit. We'll be with you shortly to help you come up with search terms, pick just the right database, or answer your question!

This is what it looks like if we're online:

We also have individual chat widgets so you can contact your liaison librarian directly.

Just take a look at our profile box to see if we're online or offline. 

This is what our profile chat widgets look like:
