Libraries and Bookstores
The Central Washington University Library: for CWU students, this is the best place to start.
- The CWU Library main page, with links to Des Moines and Lynwood branch campus libraries, as well as the Brooks library on campus. Search the catalog, databases, journal titles, Summit/Worldcat, guides and digital collections.
- Search Engine Guide: a far more comprehensive list of search engines and information on which ones get the most use, as well as articles on how to optimize your own web site. "The definitive guide to all search engine information on the Internet."
- The Library of Congress: our national library. The search engines are a little harder to master, but if the book you're looking for exists, you can probably find it here.
Bookstores on the web
- Amazon.Com: more than just a bookstore.
- Barnes & Noble: both B&N and Amazon also feature e-books.
- The CWU University Store: order your textbooks online here.
- If our library doesn't yet have material you're interested in, you can ask them to acquire it.
