Suggested Internet Searches

  • Google Scholar
    A useful tool when collecting research information. Accessing Google Scholar from the Library Databases page will link to the subscription sources available to you as a Texas State student. If you do not use the library link for off-campus access, you will not be able to access library-subscribed content. If you are off-campus and use the library link, you will be prompted for your Texas State NetID to search Google Scholar.
  • Google Advanced Search
    Use Google Advanced Search to limit and filter your internet search results.
  • USA.gov
    Official information from the U.S. government. A treasure of online information - including scientific and technical reports!
