Most of the Library's licensed electronic resources, such as databases, full-text online journals and ebooks, are restricted to McGill students and staff. Find out about accessing the Library's online resources from on and off campus.

Use research databases to find journal articles and conference papers on your topic. For example:

  • Search Compendex.
  • Search for: biodiesel fuel AND energy source
  • Find the article by Tsai, Lin, and Yeh:
    • "An analysis of biodiesel fuel from waste edible oil in Taiwan" Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, vol. 11 no. 5, 2008, pp. 838-857.
  • Click on "Detailed"; read the abstract. [Clicking on the Main heading, Controlled terms and Uncontrolled terms links will give you more articles about those subjects.]
  • Click on the red McGill "Find Full Text" or the blue "Full text" link to search for the article online.
  • If you are not offered the article full-text, then search the library catalogue. If the library does not subscribe to the journal, then get it on Interlibrary Loan (ILL). There are no charges for ILL; McGill Library subsidizes this service.

            Do not wait until it is too late for us to help you with ILL.
