A note about SmartSearch

University Libraries uses SmartSearch (by Summon), a discovery tool that searches many library databases as well as the library catalog simultaneously. However, it is not discovering resources from the following databases and these databases should be searched separately.

  • Scopus
  • Scitation Index
  • SciFinder
  • PsycINFO
  • PsycTESTS


Icon = WSU Faculty, Staff & Students only

Icon = Available to everyone

full text = Full text

some full text = Some full text

abstract / citation = Abstract / Citation

index = Index



Use these databases and other resources to find scholarly journal articles, magazine articles, conference papers and proceedings, technical reports, and other publications.

SmartSearch will search most of the library's databases and library catalog at the same time!

Google Scholar will give you the WSU Full-Text Finder feature so you won't be prompted to pay for items we have access to.

If you can't find something you need, submit a request through Interlibrary Loan.

While many of our databases are excellent resources, IEEE Xplore, Scopus, and Science Direct are pretty good starting points (see below).
