What do you need?
The library has access to many resources--not just books--to help you locate the information you need.
First, decide what you are looking for.
Are you interested in a general overview of a topic? Or biographical information on a contemporary artist? Or specific information on Cubism?
Once you have defined your topic, it is much easier to determine where you should go to get the information.
If you need help defining your topic email me at email@example.com.
What if you need a resource that is not available at Voskuyl Library?
Is there a book, article, thesis, working paper, or other resource that you need but it's not available at Westmont?
Borrow it through our free Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.
