Is Google Scholar ok?

What's the deal with Google Scholar?

Google Scholar searches many of our subscriptions with that comfy Google interface and proprietary algorithm. 

Is everything 'scholarly'?

  • No, make sure to take a look at the original source. Who wrote it? Was it published? Where?

Sometimes I can get the articles when I search Google Scholar, sometimes I can't. 

  • If you're off campus, this likely means you need to 'sign in' to our subscriptions. Head to www.lib.utexas.edu, choose the Articles tab on the blue search box and click the Google Scholar link:

I got, like, a million results in Google Scholar.

  • Try using the advanced search, which isn't very advanced. It's the downward pointing arrow at the end of the search bar. You're better off strategizing a better set of keywords.
