Google Scholar

What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar Scholar Preferences

Google Scholar is a search tool used to find academic articles from a variety of sources across many disciplines. When your search results include citations that SRJC users may access, you will see a "Full-Text @ SRJC" link displayed beside these citations in Google Scholar. In other cases, you will see an option to search for the citation in the SRJC Libraries through the link, "Other Resources @ SRJC".
