Google Scholar

Google Scholar is an internet search engine geared specifically for scholarly literature. It is a great tool to explore citations, related works, and authors. A Google Scholar search may retreive articles and abstracts for journlas that are not available in full text online, but can be located through the databases at the Touro College Library.

Did you know that Google Scholar can let you know when the Full Text of an article is available through your college library subscriptions? To enable this feature, click the gear icon in the top right corner of the search page. Go to Library Links and type in Touro College, then select Touro College - Find it @ Touro and save your preferences. Remember to sign in with your Google Account each time for these preferences to remain throughout your searching!
