Finding Journal Articles

To find articles on a topic:

Visit the library's Databases page and choose your topic. Search for articles in any of the selected databases.
To find 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.
To find other, high quality information:  Check the Best Web Sites: Health Care page and revisit this LibGuide. Information and resources are updated regularly!
Can't find what you need? Submit an Interlibrary Loan request or Ask a Librarian.

Finding Websites

Anybody can and anybody will post anything online. So, how do you find the good stuff? By visiting the library's Best Websites page.  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.


Use the valuable information found on the Library's Evaluating Sources guide to help you decide if a source is credible and appropriate for your writing.
