Use Google Scholar while on campus OR after you've logged into the MARQCAT Library Login.
– Because then Google Scholar will have Find It @ MU links
– Because those Find It @ MU links will get you to articles that the libraries have paid for
– Because you will not be asked for your credit card!
Google Scholar indexes (provides links to) content from:
– Commercial scholarly publishers
– Scholarly society / association publishers
– University library institutional repositories (IR's). An IR is an online collection of material published by the university's faculty, often in a pre-publication manuscript form; sometimes also students.
For example, see Raynor Library's e-Publications@Marquette.
– Government agencies
– Non-profit organizations.
The important thing to know:
The majority of the content indexed by Google Scholar is scholarly, but not all. And not all of it is peer-reviewed.
Here's a short video showing how Find it @ MU works. (About 4 minutes long.)
Two common ways to find out if the Libraries have access to the articles you need:
Click on in the article citation. Another window / tab opens with two possible options:
The MARQCAT record will indicate what years we have in print and/or online, providing call number locations for the print and links to the e-journal. Once at the e-journal, navigate to the volume, issue and page that you need.
Didn't find the article/journal using Find it @MU or MARQCAT? Request the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) by clicking on the link at the bottom of the Find it @MU window or tab. Learn more about ILL here.
