Is It Okay to Use Google?

Since you will have to verify that your sources are scholarly and reputable, it is not a good idea to use Google to find journal articles. 

You will be able to spend less time overall on your research if you use databases available from the Cornette Library.

Good Research Takes Time

For a major research project, allow at least one week to find articles that are available online.

You may need about one additional week to find the articles that are in print or that need to be obtained via Interlibrary Loan.

Also, after reading the articles you find first, you may discover that you need to find additional articles that are tricky to find.  Allow one week minimum.

Is Everything Online?

No.  Sometimes an article may only be available in print or on microfilm in the library.

Generally, you will find copies of journals on the second floor of the library--in the Periodicals area.  (Areas 9 and 10 of the linked map.)
