Google Scholar

Try Google Scholar if you can't find what you need in the library. Most articles are not available in full text, but it is possible to link to Foothill's collection. Go to Scholar Settings in the upper right-hand corner of the Google Scholar site and make sure Foothill College is selected under Library Links.

EBSCO Discovery Service

One search — many resources! EBSCO Discovery Service allows you to search not only our full collection of EBSCO databases, but the complete library catalog, eBook collections, streaming videos, and many other database collections as well.
