Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides access to scholarly articles and books. You will not often find freely available full-text, but Scholar can be a useful tool to supplement searches in other resources. Be sure to check Full-Text Finder to see if an article you want to read is available in a database or print journal at USC Upstate. Use Interlibrary Loan to order articles not available at USC Upstate. You can optimize Scholar to find full-text in USC Upstate Library resources by following these steps:

  1. Go to
  2. Click "settings" on the upper right
