Finding and Using Copyrighted Materials:

An effective means of finding scholarly literature is Google Scholar. Google provides a simple search engine that searches across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities, and other scholarly organizations. Google Scholar can help students identify the most relevant scholarly research on their topic.

Among the helpful features of Google Scholar is the ability to fine-tune your search using limiting descriptors, such as author, publication, and date. Google calls these search "operators." One set of operators is on the Advanced Scholar Search Page, and it's secrets are explained on the page called Advanced Scholar Search Tips.

Study shows college students have lack of Web savvy with search engines and determining credibility.
