The Library Channel is premiering a new series which will "Spotlight" key research resources available to the ASU community. Our first resource to spotlight is "Google Scholar" - a valuable tool to locate many types of academic research.
Google Scholar is a great resource for finding many academic materials such as books, journals articles, and even university websites. The tool is especially useful if your search is multidisciplinary. The program will show you what's special about the ASU customized version, where to find it, how the library can help you improve your search results, limitations of the search engine, and additional tools to meet the rest of your research needs.
If you haven't tried Google Scholar yet, (or never heard of it) then check out
