This guide will introduce you to resources you can use when researching in physics.

Accessing Books

Stack of booksOur library provides access to hundreds of thousands of books both physical copies in our library and ebooks that are accessible through our website. Ebooks can be accessed 24/7 through the library's website. Physical books can be requested through our discovery service and picked up in the library. 

Finding Books

Books covering the topics of interest to students studying Physics are likely to be found in the Call Number sections starting with the letter Q or T. In the Library of Congress system, Q represents science with the subsection of QA 75 representing computers and the subsection QC representing Physics. In the Library of Congress system, T represents Technology. Learn more about LC and reading spine labels by watching the video in the far left column of this page. 


EZBorrow is a focused ILL request that is only for books. You can place ILL requests directly through the EZBorrow search tool. The request goes out to the libraries in our consortium and comes to the Clark Family Library via UPS. These items typically arrive faster than traditional ILL requests and have a longer lending period. So if you need a book that the Clark Family Library doesn't own we suggest EZ Borrow as your first place to look. 

Your EZBorrow patron ID is a 10-digit number. To find your patron ID, add two 0's at the beginning and a 1 at the end of the number on the back of your W&J ID card. (Examples and more information). Contact with questions.
