Google Scholar

Google Scholar is highly recommended as a first choice for finding scholarly articles. As it indexes scholarly literature, other business sources like news, company reports, industry overviews, and trade publications will not be found in Google Scholar. For these, our other business databases will be useful. Also, the full text of many law review articles can be found in our Westlaw | Law Reviews & Journals database. Google Scholar is strong in the areas of medicine, engineering, the sciences, and business. It provides relevancy rankings based on the citation patterns of the articles. Sources are linked to Library electronic holdings via our "Find-It" service.

Setting up and Troubleshooting Google Scholar:

If you are accessing Google Scholar from computers on campus, you should be able to
see the article citation's "Find-It" links and be able to access full text of most articles. However, if you are off campus, or on laptops, you may have to set preferences to see the "Find-It" links.

To do this, go to Google Scholar:

Click on "Settings" in the upper right corner.

Click on "Library Links"

Search for UMD Library or Kathryn A. Martin Library as WorldCat and shown below, and save your preferences.
