These databases are good sources to find information about your topic:
Finding an Article when you have a Citation
Visit the library's home page and select the Google Scholar link to search the content of Alverno Library's databases as well as the "free" web. Enter the article title into the Google Scholar search box and look for the full text links on the right side of the page. Not finding what you need? Use TOPCAT, Alverno's e-Journal portal, or Interlibrary Loan to obtain a copy of your article.
To find books located at the Alverno Library, visit the library home page and select the TOPCAT search box. You can also use TOPCAT to search for and request books from other libraries in the SWITCH consortium. Questions? Please contact a librarian for assistance.
Looking for recent books or electronic books? Click the tabs located about this box.
Anybody can and anybody will post anything online. So, how do you find the good stuff? By visiting the library's Best Websites. These quality websites have been vetted by Alverno librarians and are a great place to find free information online.
Not finding what you need? Try using these criteria (courtesy of Kent State University) to evaluate the quality of websites that you find on your own.
Another tip is to use Google's Advanced Search feature which allows you to limit a search by domain. For example, limiting a search to .gov or .edu will only retrieve websites published by government bodies or accredited post secondary educational institutions. There is also a new domain for non-governmental organizations, .ngo .
**Another easy way to find NGO's is to do an advanced Google search:
Use the a search term such as "water" and limit your search by the new domain name, ".ngo".
