Barron Core 120 Fall 2023: Home

Greetings from your librarian!

Welcome to Watzek! I'm Jim Bunnelle, your librarian. If you have questions this semester about research or library tools, contact me.

For quick questions, email me at For longer ones, or if you'd like to look at something together, book a research consultation on Calendly.

Readings for Your Courses

Watzek keeps a copy of most required texts on reserve, which means that they may be borrowed for short periods (usually 3 hours; regular, non-reserve items may be borrowed for 12 weeks).

Search Print and Electronic Collections

Primo is our all-purpose search tool that allows you to find books, media, ebooks, and articles at Watzek. It will also show you results at other libraries in the Pacific Northwest, which you can request to be delivered to Watzek for free.

In addition to Primo, Watzek subscribes to more than 200 databases that give you more sophisticated control over your searching.

What is a research consultation?

A research consultation is a one-on-one conversation between you and a librarian; you can choose to meet in person or virtually. You might think of a consultation as analogous to tutoring. We can discuss your questions, use search tools together, talk about how to find books in the library, or anything else that will help you. You don't need to have a polished research question: my colleagues and I are happy to meet with you at any stage.

When you prefer not to make an appointment, you can find us ready to chat at the Research Help desk on weekdays between 12 and 4, or online when you see the orange "Chat" symbol on the library website.
