When using Google Scholar
from campus, look for links that read "Get Item at Watzek." In the case of articles, these links will point you to the full text of the article if available through Watzek's subscriptions. In the case of books, they will allow you to easily check the Lewis & Clark library catalog and/or the Summit catalog for the availability of the book. To activate these links from OFF CAMPUS, go to Scholar Preferences
and search for "Watzek" using the "Find Library" feature. Then select "Lewis & Clark College Watzek Library (Get Item at Watzek)." These links DO NOT require installing software or a browser plug-in.

The former Art Department Slide Library is now under the administration of Watzek Library and is called the Visual Resources Collection
. The new name reflects the increasing importance of digital images as a teaching resource and as a component of the collection. It contains over 50,000 slides and hundreds of digital images of the art and architecture of the world. Discover how you might integrate these images into your classroom teaching or presentations.

Lewis & Clark students and faculty now have direct access to this important online resource. Web of Science
includes two citation databases, Science Citation Index and Social Sciences Citation Index, and a third, Arts and Humanities Citation Index
, which can be accessed separately.
These databases contain citations to the articles in thousands of scholarly journals, including the cited references at the end of the articles, and provide the capability of searching those references. Our coverage goes back to 1985.

Looking for an easy way to manage all those references you need for your paper or term project? RefWorks is a Web-based system that can take citation information directly from the databases used to find journal articles and other sources, and put it into the format of your choice. If you have several projects going at once, use RefWorks folders to organize them. Then, export the reference you want, in the style you need, directly into your paper. Finally, create your bibliography from all the references in your database, or just the ones from a particular folder.
You can access RefWorks
from any computer with an Internet connection. (It's listed in the A-Z list under Journal Articles & Research Guides on the Library's Web site.) Or get to it by clicking on the RefWorks icon that appears when you use the
button at the end of a database reference. Set up your personal account on the RefWorks Web site and get organized!
