Research Introduction

With the challenges presented by the Fall 2020 semester and the increased dependence on the UVA Library's online resources, this guide is intended to walk you through the basics of access to our online databases as well as tips and tricks for honing your

Find@UVA Button

Nothing you have to download! This is already included in the library's online resources. You may already have it added to Google Scholar (I also included instructions about how to add it to your Google Scholar account just in case). 

But particularly as we're all working off-grounds, you may run into more cases of hitting a paywall or not having access to the materials that you need. And the "Find@UVA" button is a great way to go from where you find an article to accessing it through the UVA Library collection. 

AND (one of my favorite parts) is that if we don't have access, it will link you to InterLibrary Loan (ILL), and autofill out the ILL form for you so requesting anything you need is super easy.
