Google Scholar provides a search of scholarly literature.
Note that not all articles on Google Scholar are free, so if you find a good article, search the Library's databases where you can get it for FREE.
You can also request items from other college libraries by filling out the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Request form.
So you find an article you like in Google Scholar and it doesn't give you the full article, or you have to pay to see the article. You want to see if it's in one of the MATC Library's databases so you can get it FREE. How do you do that?
First, make sure your Google Scholar settings are set up to show the MATC Library. Do this by going to Google Scholar and clicking on the Settings gear icon. Then click on Library Links on the left, do a search for "MATC," and then check the box, "Find @ MATC Library" and save.
Now when you do a search in Google Scholar, you will see links to the articles that can be found in the MATC Library. Example: a search in Google Scholar for video games AND violence AND children results in this article that doesn't include the full text. You can just click on the link at the right, "Find @ MATC Library."
If we don't have access to the article at the MATC Library, we could try to get it from another library through Interlibrary Loan. Just click fill out the Interlibrary Loan Request form with the citation information to the article.
