Welcome!

Welcome to the David & Lorraine Cheng Library!  This guide should serve as a starting point for your research needs for your Liberal Studies Senior Capstone course. Please be sure to contact me if you need assistance! I am happy to meet with you in person or online. My contact information is on the right side of the page. 

Finding Books & Media

To find books and media that our library owns, use the Books & Media tab on our homepage, or search for everything with the Search All option.

Start with one or two keywords, adding quotation marks ("") around concepts with more than one word: for example, "middle school" or "autism spectrum disorder"... quotes are not needed for single words, such as education or science.

Narrow your results using the limits on the right side of the results page.  You may see a lot of non-book items, so be sure to limit the Resource Type category to Books, if that's what you're looking for.

When you've found a book (or ebook!) that looks interesting, click the title to learn more about it, or (if it's Available), write down the location and call number and head to the shelves to get it!

If you see 'Available Online', the book or media is available online!

Search All

Search All provides a great starting point for research. There's one search box that searches our library catalog for books, e-books, videos and music; but also our databases for journal article content. 

You'll find a number of facets, or limiters, along the left side of your results list. Use these to refine your search to the type of material you seek (book, articles, etc.) and also limit to a date range, library location, or other filters.

If you have questions, please contact us at 973-720-2116, via email at refdesk@wpunj.edu, or via chat at the Library home page.
