Q6.

Can I use Google Scholar to find full text articles?
Google Scholar is used to find information on research topics from scholarly literature. You can search Google Scholar just as you would search regular Google, but you may find simple keywords searches to be insufficient for your quest to find journal articles that fit your topic, thesis, or research question.

Google Scholar allows advanced search options to modify your search. However, you would not have as many search limiting options as you would get in a traditional library database.

Q7.

How can I get help with citations?
A citation is the way you inform your readers that certain material in your work came from another source. It also gives your readers important information such as:

  • Author
  • Title of the work
  • Name and location of the publisher
  • Date or year of the copy published
  • Page numbers.

You can always get help with your citations by either visiting User Skills link in the Taylor’s Library Homepage or by asking the Information Services Desk.

On the Taylor’s Library Homepage click on the 'User Support' link under the 'User Skills' tab. Select 'Students' and then 'Referencing' where you will find 7 different styles of citations such as APA, MLA, Harvard, Vancouver, OSCOLA and IEEE Referencing Style.

Q8.

Is there a librarian who covers my discipline? How can I contact him/her?
Yes, there is a Librarian who specifically covers your discipline. Search the Liaison Librarian’s name in the Library Website under the Library Service Contact.
