These databases are focused on what all graduate students need to know: how to analyse citations in their discipline to help them determine the best articles and most respected authors in their field of study.
Dissertation and Theses of other graduate students can be searched directly, and citation analysis will permit you to find which articles are cited most often by other authors in a particular discipline.
Includes science, social sciences, and arts and humanities citation indexes

This project of Google has scanned and indexed the contents of hundreds of library periodical databases. Set your preferences for "Library" to Sacramento State so that “Find It @SacState” link will appear and show if we subscribe to the journal. Anyone can use this link to find articles in our databases, but only authenticated Sac State users can actually access the full text articles.
