Description:

Google Scholar is a freely available search engine that emphasizes scholarly information, particularly in the sciences and technology. Information is drawn from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities. The "cited by" links are especially useful for items not listed in Web of Science, the traditional citation index.

Indexed material can be search using the usual Google basic keyword searching but for Advanced Search, click on the small arrow inside the search box on the right. Before using information, check the source; for example, an article may be available in several versions, from draft to final form as published in a journal.

Laurier Library has set up this link to let you sign in with your Laurier account when off campus which then adds "Get it @ Laurier" links to some of the content. You can also set up your own personal Google account to know you're a Laurier Library patron in the settings (see "More information" below) so you don't have to sign in with your Laurier account each time.
