Gather Your Materials

Step 7

Once you have your list of sources, you can then begin to gather the materials to read.

Availability of Materials Examples of Materials How to Get Materials
Available electronically GALILEO full text databases; Internet information Print off from database or from Internet
Materials owned by your library Books, magazines, scholarly journals, newspapers Locate materials in your library and check out those items that can be checked out. For those items that cannot be checked out, such as magazines or reference books, either read the article in the library or make a copy, remembering copyright restrictions.
Materials not available in full text electronically or owned by your Library Books, magazines, scholarly journals, newspapers Request the books and/or copies of the articles through ILL (interlibrary loan).
