Google for Researchers

Why Google?

Google is a large search engine that most people use in their everyday lives. Not many people think of using it in their research, but there are several components that make it useful to today's health science professionals. Google can be an excellent source in finding research materials. It can also be an effective tool for researching and finding scholarly materials, but it is certainly not a replacement for using Library databases and subscriptions. Alumni and visitors to this site can use Google to find full-text articles and books that they can use in their research.

This guide is a companion to the Google for Researchers workshop hosted by the Health Sciences Library. If you have any questions, please email Kay Strahan. You can view our scheduled workshops on the Library's Workshop Calendar.
