ENSC 130: Global Environmental Assessment - Galford (Fall 2017)

Working Off Campus?

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.

 

Using Google Scholar from Off-Campus?

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

OR

2) If you have the VPN (Cisco Anyconnect) installed on your computer, log into that first, and then go to: http://scholar.google.com

Finding Scholarly Articles for this class and others ...

 

Here are some recommended databases for researching environmental science topics. 
**  Remember to "Connect Off Campus" first, if using from off-campus.

Using CATQuest

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.

HELP: The CATQuest User Guide serves as an introduction to the discovery tool CATQuest.
