Google Scholar is Google's academic search engine. It can be used to find publications from reputable publishers and institutions. Because it only covers a portion of scholarly literature, we recommend that you use Google Scholar in addition to searching Library Databases.

Getting Started

  1. Go to and search for your topic.
  2. If you want to see only newer results, look under ANYTIME and change the year(s).
  3. Beneath each result, click on CITE. MLA, APA, and other citations styles are available for you to copy and paste into your bibliography.

Improving Your Search Results

If you don't like your search results, try the ADVANCED SEARCH. Click on the down arrow to the right of the search box to get the advanced search screen:
