This guide gives you great pointers on the best databases and resources for your field. Don't forget that you can find help on 24/7 live chat at any time of day or night. You can also email the CLA librarian, Brett Bodemer, at email@example.com.
MAKE SURE you are logged into My Cal Poly Portal when you use Google Scholar so the Get it At Cal Poly button can get you to the full text. (Sometimes the Get it at Cal Poly Button is hidden UNDER a result so click the two little arrows >> )
GREAT TIP: IN THE UPPER LEFT HAND CORNER, CLICK ON the "three line" icon, select CHANGE DATABASES, check the box for SELECT ALL, then scroll to bottom and click on USE SELECTED DATABASES. You will now be searching all Proquest databases at once.
Search Ebrary, SpringerLink and Project Muse for ebooks
Use relevant keywords then use filters on left. For immediately available electronic results, use the filter on the left: "Available Online at Kennedy' and then filter for ebooks if you want online ebooks. For tangible items held in Kennedy click on the filter: Robert E. Kennedy Library. You can also filter a second time for books. But remember, If you are signed into OneSearch any record for an item not immediately available will give you clear options for getting articles, chapters, or whole books.
