Q. What is Google Scholar?


What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar is a search engine that can be used to find articles (as well as book citations, conference proceedings, and more) to aid in our research. We still must evaluate all the resources we find in Google Scholar. Despite the name, not everything in Google Scholar is “scholarly”. 

When should I use Google Scholar?

Google Scholar can be a great place to go in addition to searching the Kirk Library’s databases. It is also helpful to use when you are searching for a full-text article that you already have a title or citation for. Google Scholar is best used when connected to the Kirk Library, using library links.
