Summit: The WSU Libraries belong to a regional library consortium, the Orbis-Cascade Alliance (OCA). What this means is if a book (and sometimes video) is not available at our campus library (we don't have it or it is currently checked out) you can order a book from another regional academic library. It will arrive in 5-10 work days. If you need a book that is not available at WSU or via in Summit, you can use Interlibrary Loan to order it; the same options are available regardless of where the book comes from.

An online (no software installation needed) U.S. national data and mapping tool and analytics platform with multidisciplinary applications for college students and faculty. Undergraduate and graduate schools use us in their curriculum and research related to social sciences, urban studies, real estate and housing analysis, community and economic development, public administration, public health, policy and political science, education, business, economics, statistics, and geography, among others. Users can leverage thousands of U.S. data indicators in PolicyMap to perform demographic and socioeconomic analysis, from a neighborhood census block group in many cases, up to a national level, as well as create custom regions, for their research and studies.

Reference management/bibliographic software helps you organize the information that you gather (articles, books, websites, images, videos, etc.) so that you can find, access, search, use, and cite it more effectively. There are a number of options that you can choose from, some freely available, some with a one-time cost with optional upgrades, and some based on an annual subscription.
Librarians at the WSU Libraries teach classes focused on two of those tools: Zotero (free, open source) and EndNote (one-time initial cost - you can get a good deal as a student - you can also purchase it via the Tech Store link on the My WSU portal - look under Quick Links on the Student page; optional upgrades). Which one is best for you? It depends on a number of factors so you might want to sign up for both an EndNote and a Zotero class, or investigate other options (see options link above).
If you are interested in learning about Zotero, check the link below and look in the left-hand of the screen for upcoming classes
If you are interested in learning about EndNote, look here for a schedule of classes and more information. WSU Pullman science librarian Chelsea Leachman offers classes at least once every semester.
