More often than not, the message instructors send to students is “Don’t go to Google!” Generally, when it comes to finding academic research, we agree. However, Google Scholar may just be the exception to the rule.
Google Scholar searches the academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities, and other web sites to find academic literature worthy of a research paper. The problem is, much of this content requires payment. ENTER: Your friendly college library. Now you can search Google Scholar and access not only the freely available stuff online, but also library-paid-for content – all in one search.
To get started with Google Scholar, read through our handy Google Scholar Guide.
