Locating Scholarly Articles
The PubMed database provides citations for literature in biomedical, health, life, chemical, and behavioral sciences, including zoonotic diseases. It provides links to full text when available.
SportDiscus includes scholarly information on sports nutrition.
Food Science & Technology Abstracts includes articles from more than 4,000 journals on nutrition and food and drink technology, such as food safety and spoilage, biotechnology, and food products.
The Web of Science database provides access to past and present multidisciplinary articles, proceedings, and other information from approximately 8,500 of the most prestigious, high impact research journals in the world. The database has a number of useful search features, including citation mapping.
CAB Abstracts offers a combination of scholarly articles, book chapters, and proceedings in a wide variety of agriculture disciplines. Includes research from international and U.S. sources from 1910 to the present.
The Cumulated Index to Nursing and Allied Health (CINAHL) database covers biomedical, health, and life sciences, including articles from a number of journals not included in PubMed.
The AGRICOLA database provides access to the collections of the U.S. National Agricultural Library. It includes materials in all formats going back to the 15th century. Predominately a citation database (in that it does not include access to a large amount of full text content), AGRICOLA has a U.S. focus.

Using Google Scholar to Find Articles
Go to Scholar Settings and select "Library Links." Enter "Texas A&M University" in the search box, select both "Texas A&M University - Full text@TAMU" and "Open WorldCat - Library Search," and save changes. This lets Google Scholar link its search results directly to the full text subscription if it is available (A&M log-in may be required).
