"Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research." (Google.  "About Google Scholar." Google, Web. 22 Feb 2011.)


Why use it?

Google Scholar provides a online search for:

  • articles from journals and magazines
  • theses other students have written
  • abstracts of reports
