The Hiebert Library is a deceptive place. The resources that you see in the building itself are only the tip of the iceberg for what we actually can provide. Through our own collection and borrowing resources such as Link+, ArticleReach, and Inter-Library Loan we can get almost anything you need. Librarians understand that access to a large amount of resources is empowering, useful, and essential to creating good researchers.
Here are some online resources we think you may find useful during your time here at FPU and even beyond.
Use when searching for full text of scholarly articles.
Google Books is another good place to check for full text of books online. Most of the time you'll only be able to see a preview, but that may be all you need to determine whether or not a resource is useful for your work. Remember that if you can't find that book in the Hiebert Library you can always get it through Link+ or Inter-library Loan.
There is also often a link to a Google Book Preview in the Encore catalog at the bottom of the full record for the book.
