Literature: Reliable Resources

Locating Articles from Citations

You should never pay money for articles when you are enrolled at SFCC.  Let the library find them for free.

Search Google Scholar

Google Scholar Search

Be sure to configure Scholar to search our libraries for full-text access. If the library has access to the full-text online, you will see "Get full text at SFCC" appear next to the citation. 

*Remember Google Scholar results are not always full text or it may cost money to get the full text.  Save money. Ask the SFCC librarians for help. Email them at or call 509-533-3834 / 800-251-1972.
