William and Mary Study Abroad: Home


All of the library's online resources are available to you from off-campus. Just remember to link to resources from library web pages so you'll be recognized as a member of the W & M community. For example, if you try to access JSTOR by going directly to from off-campus, you won't be able to get in. If you link to JSTOR from the library's electronic resources, you'l be asked for your W&M and passed on through.

Be sure to set your preferences in Google Scholar so you can link to W & M resources.

For research help, you can email us, Skype with us, or chat with us!

Swem Catalog Search

Use the library catalog to search for books.

Sample Basic Searches:

Title Enter title without beginning "A", "An", "The"
Author Enter last name, then first (e.g. Einstein, Albert)

Good for starting a search for books on a topic; then use
subject headings on relevant records to find more.

Subject Tricky! Need to know Library of Congress subject headings.

Can't find what you are looking for in our catalog? Try WorldCat which has books, manuscripts, films, and resources from around the world.
