Other Indexes: find out what articles have been written

Indexes give information (author, title of the article, name of the journal, date, volume, issue, pages) on published articles and other documents, making them easy to locate.  You will find links to full articles if we subscribe to the publication.

Full Text Databases: Journal publishers' websites

These are publishers' databases. The journals indexed and the full articles are from the publishers selection of journals. Sac State's subscriptions to these databases do not always cover the complete backfile (or archive) so all years (volumes) may not be available online. We may have print copies in the Library on 3South or the Lower Level. Check OneSearch, the catalog, for availability.

Search Engine: index to scholarly articles

This search engine,, looks for scholarly information available online. Access to complete articles depends on whether we subscribe.
