The Mississippi State University Libraries are pleased to announce the addition of three new technologies that assist in discovering and accessing information resources needed for your teaching, research and learning. These new technologies include: CloudSource+, CloudSourceOA, and Article Galaxy Scholar. The Libraries Institutional Repository, Scholars Junction, and our digital collections will be added to CloudSource+ at a later date. Press Release.

  • CloudSource+ is a new discovery tool that searches across multiple databases, journal publishers, the library's online catalog, as well as CloudSourceOA.  
  • CloudSourceOA is an index of over 55 million high-quality open access scholarly journal articles, open textbooks, open eBooks, and open education resources.
  • Article Galaxy Scholar is a back-end, document delivery service provides access to journal articles not available from the MSU Libraries.  This service will likely be available to specific faculty and graduate students who need access to specific journals.  

We are still in the process of implementing Article Galaxy Scholar and, while CloudSource+ is currently available on our website using the Discovery link, we are continuing to add content and features. CloudSource+ will continue to evolve over the next several weeks.  We will use this guide to assist in keeping you updated on new features and services.  

We appreciate your patience as we implement these new, transformative technologies, and we welcome your feedback.
