Accessing Scholarly Research Articles When You're No Longer a Student
Do you find that you are in need of scholarly research or scientific articles even after you have left UB? Do you find you're often hitting a paywall to access this information? It can be frustrating to lose access to library research databases after you have left UB, but there are ways to find freely available scholarly information -free and legal browser plug-ins! This webinar will go over some of the web browser plug-ins that are available, how to use them, and which ones may work for you. In addition, library access information for UB alumni will also be covered.
