Information Literacy

This is a learning guide designed to teach students about information literacy and why it matters.

Google Scholar

Different than basic Google, Google Scholar gives you access to scholarly literature. This can be a great tool when you have been assigned to do research and are expected to find scholarly research articles. However, a title might appear in the Google Scholar results list, but you may not have full access to it unless you pay. In that case, copy the title information from the result list and search for that same article in the library's Library Search box. Make sure to set the search menu to the Title field. The library may be able to get you access to that same article for free. Alternatively, contact a librarian for assistance to determine if the library has access to the article, or can get it through interlibrary loan, or if the library can find a similar but different research article.
