Make sure to connect Google Scholar with the Tomlinson Library to enhance your research.
1. From Google Scholar, click on the three lines in the upper left hand corner.
2. Click on Settings.
3. Click on Library Links.
4. Type in Colorado Mesa University.
Once you save, you'll be able to see what CMU owns within your Google Scholar Search.
One note of caution: sometimes you will be taken to a publisher's website asking for money to gain access. Never pay for an article. Use Interlibrary Loan for free access.
Be sure to check bibliographies, works cited and notes in the useful material for your research. They provide information on whether or not the material is considered scholarly and can also give you additional sources for your own research.
Use the same search techniques to find a specific source to see if the library provides access. If not, then Prospector or Interlibrary Loan for content you can't find through the library.
