About this Guide

This guide is to provide English 360 students with a research hub. Here you will find links to key resources and instructions to help you use the Library resources.

If you need more help at any time, our friendly team of Reference Librarians is standing by ready to help! You can reach us using the chat box on this page in the lower left column. Or call, email, or text. The contact info is right next to that bright red chat box!

Searching JSTOR

The trick to searching JSTOR is to enter through our University's library website. If you go straight to JSTOR, the site will have no idea that you are a University of Louisiana at Lafayette student, and you will not have access to as many full-text articles.

For help, see instructions below. If you need help, we're just a chat away -- use the red ASK US! chat box on the left of this page!

Start at the library home page&nbsp;<span class=""><i><b><a href="http://library.louisiana.edu" title="Link: http://library.louisiana.edu">http://library.louisiana.edu</a></b></i></span> and from the Research Menu, choose&nbsp;<span class=""><i><b>Find Articles</b></i></span>

Scroll down the page to the A-Z listing and Click <span class=""><i><b>J&nbsp;</b></i>for a list of all the library databases that start with J</span>

Click <span class="component"><i><b>JSTOR</b></i></span>

If you are off campus, you will see a login screen. Enter your university email user name and password.&nbsp;

Now you are logged in and ready to <span><i><b>Search JSTOR!&nbsp;</b></i></span>

Searching Project MUSE

Anyone can search Project MUSE, but you may be asked to pay for articles unless you enter through our University's library website. See the guide below for a step-by-step description of how to login. If you need help, a librarian who can help you find articles is just a chat away -- use the red ASK US! chat box on the left of this page!

From the library website <b><i>library.louisiana.edu</i></b>&nbsp;click <span class=""><i><b>Find Articles</b></i></span>

Scroll down to the alphabet and click the letter&nbsp;<span class=""><i><b>P </b></i>for Project Muse.</span>

Click <span class="component"><i><b>Project Muse</b></i></span>

If you are asked to log in, use your university email username and password.&nbsp; Click <span class=""><i><b>Login</b></i></span>

You are now in Project Muse!&nbsp; Enter a search word or two in the bar at the top and click <span class=""><i><b>search button</b></i>.</span>

Type **** in <span class="component"><i><b>search term</b></i></span> and Press Enter

That's it. You're done.
