Use Omni to search the library's catalogue for books, articles, videos, maps, government documents, music, data sets, open access materials, and more. You can discover materials that are not available at Queen's but that you can freely request either within Omni or through interlibrary loan. 


Tip: Take a look at the bibliography of journal articles that you find or that an instructor has assigned to you. Often, you will find references to relevant and seminal books related to your research topic.
