Do you use Google Scholar? Make it more effective by linking it to the Library and gaining access to our subscriptions. 

Go to Google Scholar. Click on Settings, then Library Links in the left-hand column. Type in "Sonoma State University," check the box next to Sonoma State University, and save. Your search results will now include a Find It@SSU link. Click on Find It for full-text articles available from the SSU Library.

Interlibrary Loan

If you need an article that we don't have in print or online, you can use Interlibrary Loan (or ILL) to request a copy from another library. Articles will usually be delivered to you electronically, usually within 24 hours.
