Google Books is great for finding books that aren't in the DSU Library. However, because of copyright law, you cannot read the books from cover to cover. What you can do is do a keyword search and read the bits of information around the highlighted keywords. With some books you can even read a few pages.
How to make Google Scholar work for you
Go to Settings ⇒ Library Links ⇒ Search for “Dixie State” ⇒ Check the box next to “Dixie State University – Full-Text @ Dixie” ⇒ Save
Blue links out to the right of an article indicate if/where you can find that article. The above step lets you see what we have available right here at the DSU Library.
Google Scholar doesn't allow you to narrow searches like a database does, but it does give you access to scholarly articles that may be available online for free or at another college or university. It's also a good way to scan for available research on extremely focused topics or find articles to request on Interlibrary Loan.
There are useful websites and information out there on the Web. You just have to do more work to make sure that the information you find is reliable, accurate, credible, and well supported.
