Books--Library Catalog

SouthernSearch is optimized for mobile displays and searchable in most mobile browsers. E-books may be viewable in mobile browsers or via apps. You may be prompted when you access the ebook to download an app if available.

Books--Beyond CSU

Search library catalogs worldwide through WorldCat and publishers' catalogs and archive collections with Google Books.

Articles--SCSU Databases

If your phone's browser can handle logins, you can login to our article databases. If your phone can display PDF files, you can also read many of the full text articles on your phone. (Not all full text will be available in these versions.) Some databases have mobile versions which display a streamlined version of the pages--not all functions may be available.

Research Guides

Get help anytime, any where. Research Guides should automatically display in a mobile-friendly format (like this page.)

Citation Tools

Many of the Citation Tools that the library supports have mobile apps and sites.

EasyBib has a mobile app (iOS and Android) that can scan book UPC barcodes and get citation information. You can also search for articles within the EasyBib database. You can then email the citations to yourself to cut and paste or add to your EasyBib account on a computer.

Endnote Web has a good iPad app (usually $3.99, but it does go on sale sometimes). Zotero has a number of apps for iOS and Android. Mendeley's iPad app is free, but only supports searching and viewing, not adding new citations.You can add a "bookmarklet" to your mobile browser.

Zotero supports "bookmarklet" functionality for adding new citations via mobile browsers.

Mendeley and Zotero both have good mobile sites, which should load automatically.
