Other Literature Search Tools:

Below are some online literature search tools. Keep in mind that Sul Ross may own references that you identify with these alternate tools and may be able to obtain references that they don't own through interlibrary loan at little or no cost to you. Before buying access to any article, be sure to check the library to see if Sul Ross already owns it. Submit an interlibrary loan request for any references that the library does not own.

Google Scholar
"Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other websites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research."

"ScienceDirect is the most comprehensive scientific research tool on the web. With over 410 million scientific items indexed at last count, it allows researchers to search for not only journal content but also scientists' homepages, courseware, pre-print server material, patents and institutional repository and website information."
