1) Our digital sources are available to you from off campus. Off campus access instructions are available here.
2) If you sign in to HathiTrust, about half of the records for physical books that we have here at the Gould Library will be available for "Temporary Access." Step by step instructions are available here.
3) If you sign in to Catalyst you will see a "Request For Digitization" link. This will lead you to an Interlibrary Loan form, which is how we're collecting and tracking digitization requests. Be aware that this may take some time and we cannot guarantee a timeline.
4) You may submit Interlibrary Loan requests for articles and book sections, though please be aware that there may be significant delays. We cannot request physical items (full books etc) through ILL at this time.
5) You may always contact me for help determining whether sources are available remotely or to help you identify sources that are available that may fit your needs.

To search for books by someone, use the Advanced Search and do an AUTHOR search. To search for books about someone, use that person's name (last name first) as a SUBJECT.
Reference sources are efficient ways to get started with most research questions. They give you an overview of your topic and give you lots and lots of clues about how to move forward with your research.
Search through hundreds of subject encyclopedias at once.
While not considered formally published, dissertations can provide a lot of really useful information. They are especially useful as pointing tools, since their literature reviews and bibliographies are usually very rich sources of information.
I also list them separately here because the FindIt button doesn't work well to link you to the full text of dissertations, so if you come across one in a research database it's best to bring the citation information directly to one of these specialized collections of dissertations in order to find the full text.
