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, search your keywords and scroll all the way down to see this:

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

  • Try using the advanced search, which isn't very advanced. It is located on the left side of the page; click on the triple bars. You're better off strategizing a better set of keywords.
