ENGL 1102H Cantrell : Google Scholar connecting to GSU databases?

Support for Literary and Cultural Analysis Prospectus and Annotated Bibliography

Google Scholar - Connecting to GSU Databases

Google Scholar can be an easy way to identify high quality information sources, but can often lead you to articles that ultimately ask you to pay for access. Many of these articles are available through GSU databases. Of course you can search our databases for the same articles, but there's an easier way! Just set up your Google account to connect Google scholar to GSU resources. Here's how:

  1. Go to Google Scholar: https://scholar.google.com/
  2. Click on the menu (“hamburger” of three lines” in upper left) and select “Settings.”
  3. In the resulting menu, in the upper left, select “library links.”
  4. Search for “Georgia State University” or other library of choice.
  5. Check the library you want.
  6. Save.

If GSU does not have the article, you can still try requesting it through Interlibrary Loan:
