Library Access and Tutorials

Full Text Access

Moody Library provides full text access to about 85% of the digital holdings. It is not higher because some publishers only provide access to abstracts. This is a publisher decision, which libraries cannot change or control. You can access  our databases and journals several ways:

  • Through our LibGuide Database page (a.k.a. subject guides). Many subject specific guides contain links to specific journals. Click on the resource and you will be taken to a sign-in page with a picture of our library. You will authenticate using your HBU email address and password (same as for the HBU Portal). NOTE: You cannot login into databases directly from the database such as You must go through the library’s pages.
  • Google Scholar:
    • Click on the hamburger icon (three stacked dashes) in the upper left corner of Google Scholar.
    • Click Settings
    • Click Library Links and type Houston Baptist University.
    • Click all the check boxes and Save. We recommend doing this each time you use Google Scholar.
  • PubMed
    • This is a new feature we are working on in the Summer of 2021 and will share more details as they become available.


The library has a self-guided tutorial service and is beginning to create more. These are available 24/7. Be sure to check again for new additions!
