**  If using from off-campus, you will be prompted for your UVM login upon clicking on a database to which the library subscribes.  Login for access.  

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.

Interdisciplinary Research

The study of the environment is broadly interdisciplinary and, depending on the nature of your research, you may find references to environmentally related scholarly journal literature in databases across the wide range of disciplines.

Look at  Databases by Subject for further resources that will be useful to you. (Click on the Browse by subject link on the right side of the screen).  Comprehensive interdisciplinary research involves using a variety of research databases.

Using Google Scholar from off campus

The easiest and recommended way to access library subscription journal articles directly from Google Scholar is to access Google Scholar from the link to it that the library provides -- either from this library research guide (Finding articles)  or from the "Research databases" list  on the Howe Library home page (click on the green button called: Research databases.)
