Google Scholar provides a way to search for scholarly literature.
Google Scholar provides citations as well as links to full-text resources.
Many scholarly works are not available full-text unless someone pays for them. Students at universities have access to many resources through their libraries.
When using Google Scholar on-campus students may find they have access to resources EMU has paid for through database or journal subscriptions. When using Google Scholar off-campus students are likely to run into pay walls.
Students should check to see if EMU has access to a resource by using either Sadie for books or the Periodicals link for journal articles.
Interlibrary loan is a good option for items we don't own.
