BEFORE you begin your research .....
Click on the "Connect off campus" green button on the library home page at http://library.uvm.edu .
Then enter in your UVM Net ID and password, same as you do for your UVM Mail and BlackBoard.
This enables you to access and use all the UVM Libraries electronic resources, such as journal article databases, the electronic journal collection, e-books, and streaming media collections.
If you have the VPN (Cisco AnyConnect) installed on your computer, FIRST log in to your VPN, and then you can use all the resources accessible from the UVM Library web page: http://library.uvm.edu
Download the VPN (Cisco AnyConnect) software from: https://www.uvm.edu/software/
Note: For those students located in China, VPN access is currently unavailable.
When researching a topic, a recommended way to start is by using a broad, interdisciplinary database to locate journal articles.
Academic Search Premier is a great database to start with.
The UVM Libraries subscribes to hundreds of databases to help you locate scholarly journal articles. Choose a general, multi-subject resource to start, such as Academic Search Premier, and then use a subject-specific database to get a greater depth of access to the subject literature.
From the library home page (http://library.uvm.edu ):
1) Click on: Research databases (green button)
2) This takes you to a master alphabetical list of databases. To look at databases by subject, click on the pull-down menu that defaults to All Subjects and select the subject of interest to you.
