  • Click on "Library Links"
  • Search for Michigan State University
  • Select "Michigan State University Libraries – MSU Text Access" and "MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY - ProQuest Fulltext" by checking the boxes
  • Click "Save"
  • Do your search in Google Scholar
  • Click on the link for "MSU Access" that appears to the right of the title of the resource and you'll be prompted for your NetID and password to access that resource.
