Using Google Scholar

Google Scholar, http://scholar.google.com/, is a way to search the internet for scholarly information on a given topic.  Unlike a normal Google search, Google Scholar searches for scholarly information provided by academic publishers, professional societies, universities, repositories and scholarly organizations.   The types of information Google Scholar provides include:

  • Peer-reviewed journal articles
  • Unpublished scholarly articles
  • Masters theses and other degree based work
  • Citations for books that may provide limited access to the text of the book. 
  • Technical reports

For the most part, Google Scholar provides a citation to articles without full-text access.  If you use Google Scholar on campus you can see links to full text articles via library databases.   

If you are using Google Scholar off campus, you will need to link Google Scholar to the full-text resources of Westchester Community College.  You can consult our online guide on how to link WCC resources.
