Google Scholar is a resource that is available for you to find scholarly resources with the power of Google. You can do a basic search by typing in your search terms in the search box or by doing an advanced search for finding articles. It is a great place to search for articles before you request an interlibrary loan and not have to wait for an article to be sent to you. If you are not able to find what you are looking for after searching Google Scholar that is when when you can request an article to be sent to you through ILL. Google Scholar can be accessed on this page anywhere the name is hyperlinked or on the right side of the page using the search bar. If you have questions about using Google Scholar or requesting interlibrary loans please be sure to contact the library.
