Getting Started

Article Databases

 

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, the Citation Linker, or Interlibrary Loan to obtain a copy of your article.

 

Logging in from off campus?
  • All Alverno electronic resources are available from off campus. Use your Alverno Network Login to access our resources from off campus.

Use the valuable information found on the Library's Source Evaluation LibGuide to help you decide if a source is credible.

To find ebooks available through the library, use the eBooks search box located on the
library home page or click here to begin your search.

Looking for recent books or electronic books? Click the tabs located above this box.


Finding Websites

Visit the library's Best Websites. These quality websites have been vetted by Alverno librarians and are a great place to find free information online. Especially useful will be
Best Websites: Peace Studies.

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 .
