HIP100 Research Skills Guide: Google Scholar

Using Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a search engine for scholarly information. You can use it as an alternative to, or in addition to, Primo Search and databases.

Google Scholar searches are not limited to Charles Sturt Library holdings, so some resources will not be available to you.

But you can set it up to show which results are held by the Library. You need to follow the instructions on the Library's Google Scholar page, or watch the video at right.

Items available via Charles Sturt Library have a Find it at CSU link:

Clicking on the Find it at CSU link takes you to the Primo Search record for the article and ultimately to the full item in the database where it is held.

The Library's Google Scholar page has instructions on using Advanced Search.
