When to use Google Scholar

Google Scholar might NOT be the best choice when:
 
  • Your topic is specific to one or two related subjects (hint: try a subject-specific database)
  • You only want books or media we have here at Furman (hint: try the catalog)
  • You have never searched a database or need help identifying what database would be good to use for you research topic (hint: ask a librarian)

Google Scholar might be a good choice when:

  • Your topic is interdisciplinary and very specific.
  • You are comfortable using advanced search in Google, but instead want to focus on scholarly resources.
  • You want to finding citing references for an article (hint: learn more about citing references here)
