San Jose Public Library is an exceptional city library system for many reasons – our outreach to San Jose's diverse, multicultural community and the award of last year's National Medal for Library Service certainly attest to this! Perhaps one of our most unique features is the fact that we are partnered with San Jose State University and a happy advantage of this academic partnership is, as a public library user, you are able to use SJSU’s wealth of information and even their databases – if you physically go to Dr. King Library.
However, if you would like to do scholarly research from home, there is no better tool than SJPL’s Academic Search Complete which you can search from home with your library card no. and PIN. Having both peer-reviewed journals and popular magazines like Consumer Reports, Academic Search Complete is one of the world’s most comprehensive scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text databases.
So, if you are an SJPL user have an in-depth research project, don’t forget to look into Academic Search Complete as an excellent first stop.
Have you ever thrown away a magazine and later realized you wanted to re-read an article from it? Well, good news! We have an online resource called Academic Search Complete that you can search for publications by title and date or article keywords. For example, maybe you wanted to read an article that was in the June issue of Fortune magazine. You could search by the magazine name and then you will be able to select which year and month you would like to view. This is a good way to browse the month's articles and especially helpful when you can't remember the article title. Other publications in Academic Search Complete that may be of interest: Money, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, Forbes, Economist, Inc., and Consumer Reports.
