  • Unlike a regular Google search, which searches many websites, Google Scholar searches specifically for scholarly literature and academic resources. 
  • You can access the link to it by typing "Google Scholar" in a Google search.
  • You search it just like you search regular Google, (but make sure the logo says Google Scholar). Enter your search terms, and you will receive articles in the results.

  • Some of these articles will be electronic full text articles, but might require that you purchase the articles.
  • Sometimes you may see "Find @ MATC Library" on the right sidebar, which means that this article is also in the MATC library's databases and you can click on this link.

  • Or you can just use the MATC Library databases to access academic and peer-reviewed full text articles, which is always FREE!  ;-)
  • See the links below for help with the MATC databases.
