Accessing Online Resources

You will be prompted to login using your myGate credentials when attempting to access University Libraries' online resources. See below for more info about your myGate credentials.

Note about ERIC

ERIC (Education Resources Information Center) can be accessed at anytime without being at MSU or with MSU network access.

ERIC indexes two distinct types of materials:

Documents - from working teachers and other professionals. These are not peer-reviewed. Documents cannot be requested via interlibrary loan. If they are not available online, they can be accessed on microfiche at the library.

​​Journals - Many of these have been peer-reviewed.

You can search "journals" and "documents" separately in ERIC. 


Databases allow you to search thousands of journals, magazines, and newspapers at the same time. Below are a selection of databases that are the most useful in the field of Career and Technical Education.

If you wish to see a list of all the databases at Murray State, see Databases A to Z page.

If the PDF or HTML link isn't provided under the result, click on the yellow "Get it @ MSU" button in order to:

  • get the article electronically full text via a different database
  • find the physical copy of the article in the library 
  • or, if the above methods aren't available, request via interlibrary loan

Note:  When you copy the citation from the database, make sure you correct the title of the article if necessary for the correct APA format. Only the first word of the title, the first word of the subtitle, and proper nouns are capitalized according to APA rules.
