Google Scholar covers a large number of peer-reviewed journals and other resources, but using it effectively requires setting it up to work with the library's vast array of over 80,000 electronic journals.
Google Scholar does not include books or videos in our collection. It also lacks special features like limiting by language, year of publication, or other controlled vocabulary ("thesaurus"). Many of our databases have their own ways to focus results, like limiting by age of subject in PsycINFO.

Google Scholar can find articles that have cited articles you already know about. This is one way to take an older article and bring its content up to date. Click the "Google Scholar" taqb above to find out how to do this.
