Look Outside The Library

The library is a great place to start your research but we aren't the only place to look for the resources you may need. Try searching a few of our favorite links:

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature.

Directory of Open Access Journals is an online directory that indexes and provides access to high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals. 

Digital Public Library of America lets you search the records of unique library and museum collections from all over the United States.

WorldCat is the OCLC's comprehensive database of books, not sure if we have it? Wondering who does? Worldcat can find it for you. 

Can't Find It?

The library has thousands of information resources but we still may not have the book or article you need! With Interlibrary Loan Services you may order books for delivery from other libraries or request articles (and chapters) to be scanned and sent directly to your university email.
