About Google Scholar

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.
