Google Scholar

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Do you have a friend or loved one making their way through college? My wife is just getting ready to complete her Master’s Degree, and I can remember all the trouble she had with finding scholarly literature to write her papers on. I don’t think normal people go to the library 5 and 6 times a week, but we did.

But then I found out about “Google Scholar”, where you can search all kinds of academically published books, papers, peer-reviews and theses. It’s the perfect tool for info and citations!

Give it a look by typing in into your browser. The interface is pretty self-explanatory, allowing you to use filter options to specify time, and to include/exclude citations!

Never knew about this one! My wife’s going to be mad!

Give it a try!

    Thanks for sharing Google Scholar with us. I am a PhD candidate and use it all the time. I just wanted you to let the readers know that if they are in college, they can set preferences within Google Scholar to look for documents within their colleges’ databases. To do this, look up at the top right hand corner of the Google Scholar page and click Scholar Preferences, type your college name in the Library Links box and click Find Library. Once your library is located, put a checkmark next to its name. For those students who use a citation builder program, they could also go to the bottom of this page and look in the Bibliography Manager section, click the down arrow next to Show links to import citations into (make selection). Finally, click Save Preferences. The next time they search on a topic, and if that topic is stored in their colleges’ databases, a link will appear to the right. Click on the college’s name and it will take them to their colleges’ databases.
