How do I get a full text article from Google Scholar CSUSM?

  1. Be sure to access Google Scholar @ CSUSM from our library database list.

  • When you're off-campus, Google Scholar will not automatically recognize you as a student with access to full text articles. Use the link above or find the Google Scholar @ CSUSM link on the library databases list to ensure you have access to full text articles.

2. After typing in your search terms and getting to the results page, look for the "Get it at CSUSM" links.

  • The "Get it @ CSUSM" links will either be located on the right side of the article title or they will be hidden behind the ">>" symbol below the article information. See both examples below. Clicking on the link will route you back into the library website to find the full text.
