JSTOR contains a wide-range of information related to the humanities. It is a go-to database for many students.
Google is great for casual research, but Google Scholar is a better resource to find information for your assignments. Use the link to GOOGLE SCHOLAR that's on the library homepage. This is synced to our databases, so if we have full text, it should give you a link. What you find in Google Scholar is, by default, of a higher caliper than what you find in regular Google.
This is also a great way to check for full text if you find a citation elsewhere. If Google Scholar doesn't lead you to the full text, contact the library for help getting a free copy of the resource you want.
We have a reference collection in the library, but you’ll also find many reference books in our general collection.
Here’s a basic list of things that qualify as reference materials:
TOPCAT (our library catalog) is best for finding books, reference books, CDs, DVDs, journals, and some of our ebooks and ejournals. You'll also find items held by other SWITCH libraries, which you can request online.
Ebook Central is our main ebook provider. Everything you find here is immediately accessible for your as an Alverno patron. You can access Ebook Central from off campus by logging into your TOPCAT account.
