Using Credo Reference Tutorial

Instructions:

1. Connect to the campus network via the VPN if you are off-campus.  You will need this connection to access one or more library databases while taking the tutorial.

2. Take the short quiz at the end of the tutorial.  Enter your email address AND your professor's email address. Afterwards locate the email confirmation. These emails often go to your SPAM folder, so be sure to check there.  It is often easiest to search in your email account for the phrase "Certificate of completion" to find your email confirmation.

Locating Known Items (UC Library Search / Google Scholar)

Google Scholar Search

Try searching for the article title in Google Scholar.  Google Scholarly usually gives you an UC-eLinks option if the full-text is not available.

Tryon, Matthew S., et al. "Excessive sugar consumption may be a difficult habit to break: a view from the brain and body." The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism 100.6 (2015): 2239-2247.

                             

Search for a book title in UC Library Search to determine if we have it.  If not, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
