Before trying to access library databases, journals, or articles from off campus, make sure to log in using the secured MSU Virtual Private Network (VPN). This will allow you to access library resources and other campus services which are otherwise restricted to users on the campus network.
Find Articles Using Library Databases
The library subscribes to over 200 different online databases to provide access to articles for your research, on topics from archaeology to zoology. A good starting place is Academic Search Complete (a broad, general, multi-disciplinary database), or you can try EBSCO Discovery to search across multiple databases and disciplines.
On the search results page, you can limit results to articles from magazines or peer-reviewed journals.
