Use Applied Science and Technology to find full-text articles from professional and technical society journals, engineering periodicals, buyers’ guides, directories, and conference proceedings. AS&Tcan be a good place to start your search but AS&T misses some specialized engineering materials and contains only a small part of the engineering literature.

SciFinder-n focuses on chemical literature. Search by topic or by chemical structure for materials information, methods, or limited properties. Limited Use: WSU Faculty and Students only. [WSU libraries purchased access for you from the American Chemical Society.]
Search these publisher-based collections to find high quality journal articles and book chapters. You will miss relevant conference papers and research reports if you limit your strategy to these search engines.
The EJC includes full-text articles from select STEM publishers (e.g.: Elsevier and Springer) and some professional associations. Use this search engine to discover journal articles from more than one publisher. Much of Science Direct and SpringLinK can be found in the OhioLINK Electronic Journal Center and Electronic Book Center.

Ratchet-up the quality of your Google search. Search Google Scholar to find journal articles, conferences papers, and patents. Google Scholar may offer you a link to the paper -- but it is more likely to point to a publisher - who will ask you to pay. The WSU libraries may be able to get you the paper you need.
Use the Settings option:
Tip #1: Add the OhioLINK "library link" to integrate WSU access options into your results.
Tip#2: If you are off-campus and see a reCAPTCHA error message "invalid domain for site key," go directly to google scholar; open the menu; choose Settings; Library Links; find and select "Wright State University - Full Text - Wright State."
The database might point to the article instead of attaching the pdf.
Look for this button:
FindIt analyzes the article citation. FindIt will point to the WSU electronic copy of the article if one is available. If FindIt can't find the article easily, FindIt will offer other options. Sometimes FindIt can't negotiate all of the article options and you may need help to find the article manually or order it through Interlibrary Loan.

Can't find the full-text? That's normal. Contact the Engineering Librarian. He will help you to find a copy. You may have to place an ILL order for material WSU does not already own.
