Library Help is Easier to Locate than Ever!

Some of you may have noticed that the library home page changed a little last week. We added a Library Help section to the right column of the home page to make it easier for you to find the kind of help that’s right for you.

The library guides, as always, are a great resource for you to go to anytime of the day or night if you need help understanding how to use library tools or conduct research, including specialized research such as finding legal information or specific types of articles. However, the library does have other forms of learning resources available to you as well.

We have compiled a handy list of our How-to videos and media for those of you who prefer video and interactive tools.

Webinars: Currently the library offers five different webinars to help you build a range of skills, from basics such as finding course readings up to improving your search for articles in the library.

Of course, if the above resources aren’t quite what you need, you can Ask a Librarian!

I would like to use the google scholar but cannot remember how to use it. I searched for: deTurck, M. A., & Miller, G. R. (1990). Training observers to detect deception: Effects of self
monitoring and rehearsal. Human Communication Research, 16, 603-620.

and was told I had to purchase it so apparently I am not using this feature correctly.

Could you help me with this?

Lee,

There’s no guarantee that Google Scholar will provide you with free content. If you want to hook Google Scholar to the Capella Library to see when an article is free to you through the library, see our Google Scholar library guide

If you need an article that is not available through the Capella Library, see our Interlibrary Loan guide.
