What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar is a subset of Google Web Search that specifically searches for scholarly literature, including articles, papers, theses, books and reports.  A Google Scholar search uses natural language. Your search is interdisciplinary, retrieving broad results. Each citation retrieved includes a “Cited by” reference which links to other articles that have used the retrieved article in its references. 

If searching from on-campus or via the GW VPN, full-text links will automatically appear in your search. These links connect you to full-text electronic journals provided by Himmelfarb Library.
