Using Google Scholar

You can access Google Scholar at If you're not finding what you want, try Advanced Search (click the small down arrow in the right-hand side of the search box).

While Google Scholar doesn't replace our own library databases, Google Scholar is helpful -- particularly for tracking down partial citations or to see how often (or where) a given article has been cited.

Link Google Scholar to the Hunter Library for all of your home devices. This will enable you to see full text of all articles for which Hunter has a subscription. Instructions
