Advanced Research Techniques Using Google Scholar
Google searches don’t always yield results from credible sources. When doing research, turn to Google Scholar, a search engine dedicated to scholarly journal articles, books, dissertations and technical reports across different subject areas. Discover the key features of this resource during this workshop.
In addition to exploring elements of the search engine like citation counts, related articles and advanced search options, you will conduct an effective search, create a search alert, and learn how to set up alerts for important authors and frequently conducted searches.
To leverage the tool for maximum research efficiency, you’ll identify how Google Scholar can facilitate citation searching, the types of research scenarios it can best benefit, and how it can be customized to provide direct access to UD-licensed materials.
Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to attend. While workshops are free of charge, registration is required as seating is limited.
