Google Scholar

Provider: Google.com
Contents: , , , , , , , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: Sources of information in many diverse disciplines are retrievable with Google Scholar. A search can return citations to articles, theses, books, patents, abstracts and court opinions from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and the Web itself. Scholar ranks your search results according to the full text of each document, its place of publication, its author, and the frequency/currency of its citation by others. Choose this link if you are registered with The TMC Library as an Academic (Educational) user, to access available full text by clicking the "Find It" button. Even with an individual, independent Google Scholar registration one can set persistent preferences, among them the convenient option to display The TMC Library's holdings at title level (and/or those of other libraries.) In either case, the "Advanced Scholar Search" page allows restriction of your search results to a particular date range, subject area, author or journal. This link is the one to choose if you are not a registered TMC Library E-Resources user and if you are not a member of a TMC academic institution.
