Britannica Online and ebooks
These are great resources for factual information. They can be searched in the catalogue like this:
1. Start at your student portal and click the Oliver library link.
2. Put in your search term and drop down the menu to federated search (not basic search).
3. Scroll down and you will find results listed from My Library and Britannica. Follow the Britannica link and enter the password lakes (twice) for username and password. Hey Presto!
Ebooks also use the password lakes.
