Lorena's COVID-19 Notes


If you need assistance, please use the "Schedule Appointment" link under my photo on the left side of this guide. You can also email me directly at - Lorena



  • Free and expanded electronic access for temporary online teaching and learning. During thw current period causing library closures, many publishers and library vendors are allowing special access to research databases and materials. Note that some of these will be invisible because they will be added to something we already have, like SAGE Research Methods or JStor.
  • Relevant highlights (although be sure to check the list for yourself!!): Publication Manual of the APA (6th and the new 7th editions); Hein Online (a great legal resource!); Paratext U.S. Documents MasterFile.
  • I really need to update this or delete it. If anyone actually lands on this, can you email me or tweet  at me (@wsulorena) just so I know ;-)

About this guide...

This library guide is intended for students who are taking Crim J 311, Undergraduate Research Methods in Criminal Justice (or other online undergraduate research methods classes) through WSU's Global Campus - or in person!. It includes links (and soon, short/shortish lecture screencasts) that will help you learn about finding and using library resources for research at WSU, including finding scholarly books and articles that you can use in a research proposal literature review and elsewhere.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me - my contact information is at the bottom of this page. If you would like more/different information, or are not understanding what/how I write, please tell me so I can make it better! Further options for assistance are available on the Services for WSU Online Students tab.

I work with the criminal justice, political science, sociology, and sport studies departments. I also am the Government Information librarian, and I work with social science data (I'm the ICPSR Official Representative for WSU), and I *also* teach technology classes (the reference management application Zotero, personal information management tools, digital privacy, creating basic ebooks) - email me if you are interested in setting up an online workshop for a group!
