Google Scholar

If you would prefer to use Google Scholar, be sure to customize your Google account so you can access materials at the library.

  1. Choose Settings from the Top-Left Menu.
  2. Click "Library Links", and search for "Texas State University"
  3. Check the boxes next to Texas State University. Now your results will include links to articles in many of our library databases.

Keep in mind that Google Scholar does not search the same set of materials that are available in the library.

  1.  There are (a GREAT many) journals in Google Scholar that are not academic or authoritative. Interrogate their credibility more vigorously. 
  2. There are journals at the library that are not in Google Scholar. Not finding much? Go check the library itself.
