Do you like using Google Scholar? Use the link below to be connected to resources paid for by K-State Libraries (only available to current faculty, staff, and students) while you are searching.
Google Scholar is a useful tool for searching through a very broad scope of articles; however, be aware that they aren’t actually all “scholarly.” Look for the text “Get It @ KSU” instead of the usual “Get It” button to search for the full text of articles that don’t have an included PDF. It is sometimes found under the “more” link below the record.
