COM538 Research Skills Guide: Use Google Scholar

Using Google Scholar

Google Scholar allows you to locate scholarly resources such as articles, theses and books.

It searches everything - unlike Primo Search which is set to search the Library's holdings only – so some resources will not be available to you.

Set up Library Links to access CSU Library's online resources and connect to CSU databases. Use these instructions.

Activity

In the adjacent Google Scholar Search box, enter some keywords that you identified in your topic analysis.

  • Use the left hand menu to limit by date.
  • Have you set your library links? Select the Find it at CSU links to access articles in our collection.
  • You may notice that there is a mix of topics, including health, education etc. Add more keywords to your search to narrow it down.
