Personal Support Worker

This guide has been developed to introduce Personal Support Worker students to Humber Libraries' resources and services, and to help with research.

Searching for Books and Reference Works

When researching your topic, consider both print and electronic books and reference works as valuable resources of information. Reference works such as encyclopedias are perfect for obtaining a clear and concise overview of a topic, while more lengthy works might offer in-depth analysis and discussion.

Humber Libraries' Discover search is a broad, multidisciplinary search tool - think of Discover as a "Google" search for the library. In addition to articles, with Discover you can search for both print and eBooks using one search box.

To search for books and eBooks, enter your keywords into Discover. When on the results page, select Book/eBook under the Content Type selection area on the left side of the page.

Tip: eBooks can be accessed anytime, anywhere - just log in to Humber Libraries using your MyHumber/HumberMail username and password. For more information or help finding print books, ask a Library staff member.
