We recommend starting at the EKU Libraries' homepage to access Google Scholar.

Enter your keywords to search Google Scholar.

Check for PDF or HTML links to full text as Google Scholar will direct link to PDFs whenever it can! We recommend trying these first!

No PDF links? Look for the Find Full Text at EKU links on the right next to the results. Use those links to get or request the full text of the articles.

Did you know? Sometimes our "Find Full Text at EKU" link is hidden behind the 2 arrows beneath a search result.

Click on the quotation marks to view suggested citations for the article. Just remember that these citations are computer generated, so you'll always want to double check them against your manual or a trusted citation help site.
