Introduction to Advanced Google Scholar Techniques

Learn techniques for searching Google Scholar in 30 minutes! We will cover everything from ways to reduce irrelevant results to how to troubleshoot when Google says that you can't access a paper or book.

Recommended audience: Everyone

Learning outcomes:

  • Participants will build effective search statements by using search operators such as author, domain, intitle, intext, filetype and by nesting operators.
  • Participants will distinguish the limitations and usefulness of Google Scholar versus commercial databases.
  • Participants will easily move between Google Scholar and the library catalog to troubleshoot Google's results.
