Google Scholar

**Tip: you now use Google Scholar to search the some of the library databases (Ebsco & Proquest)! Just follow these steps to get this service working on your (home) computer:

  1. Go to Google Scholar.
  2. Click on the "Options" wheel link in the upper right-hand corner and click on the "scholar preferences" link.
  3. Scroll about 1/2 down the page and type in Mt San Jacinto in the the "Library Links" field & press the "Find Library" button.
  4. Check all of the MSJC options that appear and click on the "save preferences" button at the top or bottom of the screen.
  5. Search for articles on your topic. You should now see links to full text articles (you will see the links to the full text on the right-hand side of the page) that are available through the library databases as well as other articles that are available on the web.

Note: you will also see articles that do not have the full text, only the citation (author, title, date, etc.). If you want to use one of these articles, you can request it through our Interlibrary Loan Service. Remember, though, it can take up to two weeks for the article to get here.

You can see these steps illustrated in this video.
