Searching Using Google Scholar

Although the library provides access to a wide variety of databases, we are not able to subscribe to the wide variety of resources that are available.  Google Scholar provides a way for you to search other database vendors and publishers for additional content. Because GS is searching database information and publisher sites, the controlled vocabulary you have discovered should provide comparable results to searching the library resources.

Typically, the full text for your search results in GS will not be available unless you purchase the content. You will also occasionally locate articles that are free from the publisher or are in open access journals.

Be sure to use the link we have provided here for you to access Google Scholar.  No dotcoms, blogs or unauthorized sources are to be used; no sources from the internet or 'regular' Google. Google Scholar is intended to search for more books and journal articles outside of our library databases.

The library is happy to locate copies of articles you find using GS with our interlibrary loan service.  Interlibrary loan is a free service for all current Newman University students.

If you have located a journal article, book chapter or book that you would like to receive a copy of, please contact Jeanette Parker and email her the citation information.  It doesn't matter if you located the title in EBSCO, JSTOR or from Google Scholar, we will do our best to get the information for you!
