Account Setup and Preferences

You will need to set up the following accounts in order to effectively use library resources:

1. Your Tower ID is your new SJSU library card! To borrow books or request articles with OneSearch, you will sign in the same way as you do for My SJSU (and Canvas, MySJSU email). 

2. Set up an ILLiad account with Interlibrary Services so you can request articles from journals not owned by SJSU Library.

3. Set up an account with RefWorks. RefWorks allows you to create bibliographies in a variety of formats. You will need the group code to access RefWorks off campus (go to Get Library Passwords).

4. Set your preferences in Google Scholar. Go to the Google Scholar tutorial for a step-by-step view of this process.
