Google Scholar: About Google Scholar

What Is Google Scholar?

What is Google Scholar?
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.

How to Use Google Scholar to Find Stuff in GALILEO

If you are a member of the Georgia Highlands College community (student, faculty, or staff), you can use Google Scholar hand in hand with GALILEO and your GHC Library Collections!

Google Scholar searches a wide range of sources.  If you just use Google Scholar by itself, you may find sources that either require that you pay for them or else simply aren't available full-text from Google.

However, if you are a member of the GHC community, you can tell Google Scholar to show you which of your search results are available through GALILEO or in print in your GHC Libraries!
