Google Scholar

  • Google Scholar
    Google Scholar is an alternative to using the online databases to search for journal articles. Simply put in your search terms and hit search. When used on campus, Google Scholar will automatically recognize D'Youville College holdings, but when using Google Scholar from home, there are three simple steps to follow:

    -click on the wheel in the upper right corner
    -select Scholar Preferences
    -enter D'Youville College Library under Library Links

    To find out if the full text of the article is available, click on either Full Text at DYC link to the right of the article citation, or Resources at DYC under the article citation. Sometimes there will be free PDFs of articles available as well; if there is, there will be a link to the right of the article citation as well.

Professional Organization Websites

American Catholic Philosophical Association (ACPA) Cultivating the Catholic philosophical heritage, the ACPA relies upon classical sources in order to analyze major philosophers of all eras and to respond to contemporary philosophical issues.

American Philosophical Association (APA) As the major professional organization for philosophers in the United States, the mission of the APA is to promote the exchange of ideas among philosophers, to encourage creative and scholarly activity in philosophy, to facilitate the professional work and teaching of philosophers, and to represent philosophy as a discipline.

The Canadian Philosophical Association (CPA-ACP) Made up principally of teachers and students of philosophy, the “resolutely bilingual” ACP-PCA is devoted to professional philosophical activity in Canada.

The Society for Women in Philosophy (SWIP) SWIP was started in 1972 to advance and encourage women in philosophy. This site includes links to articles, reading lists, Feminist Theory resources, a Feminist Philosophy blog and more.
