Account Setup and Preferences

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

1) Set up an account with RefWorks. RefWorks allows you to create a personal database of references and generate bibliographies in a variety of formats. You will need to use your academic email address (FirstName.LastName@sjsu.edu) in order to create a RefWorks account. IF -- and ONLY IF -- you had created a RefWorks account in the past using the legacy RefWorks (orange logo), you may sign in to the new RefWorks using your previous username and password. 

2) Set up an account with Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)Request non-SJSU Library owned or subscribed content through this free service. Allow 3-5 days for articles and up to two weeks for books.

3) Customize Google Scholar to search SJSU holdings (for full-text articles) and to export citations to your RefWorks account. See this tutorial for details. You can also access the Google Scholar tab on the home page of the library's website, which will automatically connect your search results with links to the full text articles in the library's databases.
