eJournals and eBooks
eJournals and eBooks are an important and growing portion of the University Libraries Collection. Because eJournals and eBooks are more easily updated than traditional print materials, they often express the most current iterations of data or academic thought.

Google Scholar and Google Books are free-to-use resources available through Google with the Library Project.
Though both Google Scholar and Google Books are great engines through which to start your search, some articles or books can have restricted access to the full text. The University Libraries may have access to those articles within their Online Database Collection or can acquire them through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
