Off Campus Access

Off-campus access is available to all current CSUS students, faculty, and staff to many Library electronic resources.

Connecting to electronic resources from off-campus may require authentication with SacLink User ID and password. Full instructions are here. 

Google Scholar

Google Scholar searches for references to scholarly articles and research papers.  Sometimes the full text is posted online and linked, other times users will see a "Find It at Sac State" option next to the Google Scholar listing (see explaination above).  Follow these instructions to configure Google Scholar to display the "Find It at Sac State" link. Except for the most simple queries, using Google Scholar Advanced Search is recommended.
