Google Scholar is a search feature of the Google search engine that seeks out scholarly books, articles and web pages from many different nonprofit and commercial sources. The database is large and includes scholarly works in many fields of study.
When searching for articles in Google Scholar, you may see the "Get It @ Marylhurst" link. If you can't access the article that you are interested in obtaining, you have the option of filling out the interlibrary loan form.
Google Scholar has some limitations.
- Google Scholar does not provide free access to all content.
- The library does not provide immediate access to all sources that Google Scholar links to, as not all sources are part of Shoen Library's holdings.
- Google Scholar does not provide a detailed summary of all sources that are searched.
- Search results are mixed -- they can be links about or to books, articles and Web pages.
