Cataloguing Tools

In the Western Libraries Catalogue, the FIMS Graduate Library location code is IMS (for Information and Media Studies):

  • IMS circ 2HR – on reserve behind the Service Desk
  • IMSSTK – stack materials
  • IMSREF – reference materials
  • IMSPER – periodicals

IMS materials can be searched for in the Western Libraries catalogue. Select the Catalogue tab in the menu bar, and search for what you’d like. To narrow your search results to FIMS Graduate Library items only, open the All Libraries and Collections drop down menu, and select Information and Media Studies.

The Graduate Library collection is a non-circulating collection, meaning that materials may not be removed from the premises. Exceptions are made for certain circumstances.

Please see our policies page or speak to us at the Service Desk for further information.
