Google Scholar has a lot of great tools to help you with your scholarly research, but sometimes you might find a great source that costs money to view.  As long as you are affiliated with MSU, you should never have to pay for your research!

Instead, connect Google Scholar to the MSU Libraries, so if you find something that you want, and it would otherwise cost money, you can use it for free via the Libraries.  You can either do that by clicking on the Google Scholar link in the Database A-Z list, or you can configure this link in under Settings from the Google Scholar website. 

More information can also be found on our guide, Google Scholar for Academic Research.
