Q. If I find an article on Google Scholar, how do I find the full text in our databases?

How do I take the information I find on Google Scholar and bring into the library search.


To find Google Scholar articles when you are not on campus, you can

1. From the Library website http://www.csulb.edu/library/,click on Specific Journals by title  and do a Citation Search by entering the information you know about the article citation into the form. Citation Search will work best if you enter in the following information:

  • Full title of the journal or ISSN (a unique identifier). Do not use a journal abbreviation.
  • Year.
  • Volume.
  • Issue.
  • First page of the article.

When you click on Submit, the Get it@CSULB will search Library resources to see if there is access to the article.


If you have set "Library Links" in Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.com/scholar_settings?sciifh=1&hl=en&as_sdt=0,5) to include "CSU, Long Beach" then a link to "Get it @ CSULB" may come up which will allow you to search for the full-text.
