What is Google Scholar?

    • Google Scholar is a Web Search that enables researchers to search particularly for scholarly literature, including papers, theses, books, and reports
  2.  Why use Google Preferences?
    • Google Scholar will search for articles accessible to DSU.  Look for the Full Text @ JasonLibrary link. The Library provides access to many journal articles indexed in Google Scholar
