Please remember to click on the "Connect Off Campus" green button on the library's home page at http://library.uvm.edu before you begin your research!
Then enter in your UVM Net ID and password, same as you do for Webmail and BlackBoard.
This enables you to use UVM Libraries electronic resources, such as journal article databases and the electronic journal collection.
A couple options to connect you with the full text of articles to which UVM has electronic subscriptions:
1) After you have logged in from the "Connect from off-campus" link on the main library home page, select: Research Databases --> Google Scholar
2) If you have the VPN (Cisco Anyconnect) installed on your computer, log into that first, and then go to: http://scholar.google.com
Here are some recommended databases for researching environmental science topics.
** Remember to "Connect Off Campus" first, if using from off-campus.
CATQuest is called a discovery tool and is a Google-like “meta” academic search engine designed to search broadly and return very large sets of results.
It searches lots (not all) of the content in databases subscribed to by the library. It is the big search box on the library home page.
