  • In the Library Links field search for Michigan State University.
  • Select Michigan State University - MSU Access.
  • Do your search in Google Scholar.
  • Click on the link for "MSU Access" that will appear to the right of the title of the resource. You will then be prompted for your MSU NetID and password to access that resource. Please Note - if you click on the title and not the "MSU Access" link you won't be taken to the resource.
