Late February 2021 -- Google Scholar often becomes difficult to access during midterms. Google does not like that we have so many people going through our off-campus connection. We have to respond for a week or so by having our log in on the Find@AppState link. This means clicking on article titles will not work as it normally would. Use the Find@AppState links.
Need help? I'm available: email wiswellj@, Zoom, chat, appointment. Zoom by appointment. Email if these times don't work.
I have Zoom office hours Wednesdays 3-4pm and Fridays 11-12noon. I'm scheduled for chat right before these times also, Wed1-3 and Fri 9-11.
