You Want to Find Articles?books and journals

google scholar

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 (below) will be useful.  Also, the full text of  many law review articles can be found in our WestLawNext 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.
