If you have the citation information for an article, you can easily search Google Scholar from the Library's webpage to see if the Library has the full text.
Here are the steps for searching for an article in Google Scholar. In this example we will look for the article:
Smith, R. L., & Rose, A. D. (2011). Labor's Involvement in Workplace Education. Adult Learning, 22(1), 4-5.
1. On the Walden Library homepage, click on Search and Find.
2. Click on Google Scholar.
3. Enter the article title in the search box.
Note: Placing words in quotation marks, as demonstrated in this screenshot, tells Google Scholar to search for the words as a complete phrase, instead of as individual words.
4. Click the Search button.
5. Find your article in the results list.
6. Look for the Find@Walden link to the right of the article citation.
7. Click the Find@Walden link to access the full text. You may need to log in with your myWalden user name and password.
What if Google Scholar doesn't find the article?
If Google Scholar can't find the article, you may have an incorrect article title. Try searching for the article in the standard Google search engine to find the correct citation.
