Miami's web library provides countless options from which to choose. One of our favorite literature databases for locating science articles in Miami's library is Web of Science (aka Science Citation Index Expanded). Here's how to get there:
Please note that to use online library subscription resources like databases and journals, you will be prompted to log in at the point you click into the resource. There is not a global login to all library resources. The My Account function on the library site does not log you in to library resources (it is just a link to print library books you have checked out).
The library offers live, real-time assistance from a Help Desk staff member. To access it, find the Ask Us! prompt in the upper right corner of the University Libraries web site and click on Chat. The service is available when the Help Desk is staffed, which on most days is until 9pm EST; check the library web site for hours. General questions may also be sent to the library via text to 513-729-9777.
Should the library schedule outages or experience technical problems, this information is communicated with the university community via several outlets:
You may also communicate problems you encounter directly to library personnel via live online chat: http://www.lib.miamioh.edu/askus

The video below will show you how to add a link to our online resources in Google Scholar, which will allow you to search without encountering quite as many paywalls.
