FYE 1000 - First-Year Experience: Internet Research

This Research guide introduces library resources that are helpful for research.

Google Scholar

Search Google Scholar to find scholarship through the Google search engine.  Look for the Full Text @ Grace College links to access articles for free.

If you find an article that is really good, but are asked to pay for that article, fill out an Interlibrary Loan form instead, and we'll get it from another library.
