JSTOR, a Hewes Library database, has become synonymous with "full text" for many researchers. And it is! While the database searches cover-to-cover scans of select scholarly journals, also included are over 40,000 scholarly ebook titles in full text, adding depth and breadth to your research.
Both collections are searched automatically in the default search, so need to change any settings or learn new tricks, but be sure to contact the Reference desk (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you do require assistance (quick guide for more information).
Looking for research materials? If you aren't able to locate what you need in the Hewes Library catalog, consider borrowing from I-Share.

This enormous consortial collection, combined with IShare’s resource sharing services, provides ready access to a collection that ranks among the world’s greatest research libraries.
