Two New Guides

Introducing two new library guides!

Finding Full Text

This guide includes several video tutorials demonstrating different methods for accessing the full text of library materials.  Topics include how to access the full text when you have a full or partial article citation, how to link to full text when searching a library database, how to find full text from the library’s online catalog, and how to link to the library’s full text subscriptions through Google Scholar.

DOI: Digital Object Identifier

Have you been painstakingly searching out DOIs for your reference lists but don’t really understand what they are all about or how they are useful to you?  This guide covers what a DOI is, where to find it, how to cite it, and how to use it to quickly find articles.
