Answer

Searching for information via RUL's links to Google Scholar  results in you being able to access Rhodes Library subscribed journals and view the full text of the articles. Google Scholar is also a quick way to review the literature and find scholarly/academic research information.

Link to GS either via the Quick Links on the library home page, or use the Library's Database LibGuide

Remember it is important to use these links as they include the authorization software enabling users to access fulltext journal articles when off-campus!

Tip! Click on the dropdown arrow for advanced Google Scholar Search

Tip! Check out the metrics and find the top rated publications for your subject
