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. With an individual Google Scholar registration one can set persistent preferences, among them the convenient option to display 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.

Descriptions: The SCOPUS database contains millions of records from 11,700+ life and health sciences publications (including all journals indexed for Medline and EMBASE) and covers most sciences and humanities fields-- total coverage, 22,800+ journal titles. SCOPUS also indexes over 8,000,000 conference papers. Searching also pulls in relevant Web resources, organized under a separate tab. Another tab separates patent results from patent offices in the US and worldwide. SCOPUS provides a Journal Analyzer tool that graphs journals, singly or for comparison, from 1996 to present, showing total citations, number of articles published, total cites divided by number of articles, and the percentage of non-cited articles. Affiliation searching is also provided. A free login for authorized users provides additional advantages: a personal profile for saving citation lists and tracking authors; a publication alert service; and direct export to RefWorks.
