This video shows you how to get the full text articles from Google Scholar using the five options that the Rod Library has to offer.


Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory Now Online

Ulrichsweb.com, the electronic version of the Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory, is now available through UNISTAR, the Library’s online catalog. Use this resource to obtain bibliographic and publisher information about more than 300,000 journals, determine journals in subject areas of interest, and identify refereed journals. This tool can be used to identify periodicals - scholarly, trade, general - covering particular disciplines or industries. Entries for specific titles include details such as publisher, start year, whether refereed, and URL. This is an international directory, so, for example, it can be used to find periodicals published in a certain country that focus on a certain industry or field.
