HCS406 Research Skills Guide: Use Google Scholar

Using Google Scholar

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

Unlike Primo Search, which is set to search the Library's holdings only, Google Scholar searches beyond Charles Sturt University Library and will include resources that are not available to you.

Set up Library Links to access the Library's online resources using these instructions.

Activity: Google Scholar

In the adjacent Google Scholar Search box, enter the keyword/ phrase combinations you tried in Primo Search:

  • "three generations" "human rights"
  • "social work practice" "human rights"

Note that you don't have to combine your keywords and phrases using an uppercase AND in Google Scholar. 

Look at the search results:

  • 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.
