Searching for Sources

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is another tool that can be helpful when searching for scholarly resources. Google scholar will find a LOT of articles and it may be harder to narrow by topic. But if you are struggling to find sources or just what to get a broad understanding of what literature is available on a topic, it can be a helpful tool.

When searching in Google Scholar, it is best to access it through the CSP library (link below). This will provide links to articles available in the CSP library, making it easier to access the full text.

Get It Button

You will see the "Get It" button in many of the library's databases. It's a powerful tool that helps connect the library's databases. If one database only has an article abstract, use the "Get It' button to see if we have it available in a different database.
