Although it can be a challenge using Google Scholar to find full text articles, this freely available search engine is perfect for research projects where you need to see what's already been written about a topic. Google Scholar is not a complete representative of all scholarly journals, so you'll want to use multiple library databases as well.
If we don't have an article or book here in the Salisbury Libraries, you can request it through a service called Interlibrary Loan. It's fast and almost always free to you!
Use Interlibrary Loan for titles you find in places like Google Scholar or citation-only databases to borrow the full text from another university.
