Google Scholar

Using Google Scholar

Google Scholar is fast, easy to use, and can lead to hundreds (or thousands) of relevant, scholarly articles in a short period of time.

Things to Note:

  • If you search Google Scholar on campus, you will see (and should click on) "Find it with OLinks" whenever we have immediate, electronic access to an article.
  • Results frequently lead to the publisher's website, and not to our library's access point. Sometimes publishers will ask you to pay for access. Don't pay. We can find it for you another way.
  • Results will include multiple versions of the same article, sometimes from different years.
  • When in doubt, contact a librarian for help.
