Using Google for College-Level Research: Google Scholar

What is Google Scholar


Google Scholar is a version of Google, that searches more scholarly literature and academic resources like:

  • articles
  • theses
  • books
  • abstracts
  • court opinions 

That's the good news!

The bad news - not everything is available full-text (the entire article) and for free. Try it for yourself! Google Scholar
