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