If there is a Government shutdown... is possible some federal websites may be partially or completely unavailable until government funding resumes. This makes researching more difficult! Here are some strategies you can use to "work around" resource closures in the case of a shutdown:

  • Use library databases (like: JSTOR, ProQuest. EBSCO, etc.)
  • Try the library's Primo One Search (we may have local access)
  • Look for similar STATE or LOCAL resources (like: white papers, publications by Washington State offices)
  • See if relevant NONPROFIT ORGS provide links (like: NatureServ)
  • Try Google Scholar (it will try to find you full text on the web)
  • Talk to a librarian! (We can't always find everything locked down during a federal shutdown, but we can help you locate alternatives!)
