Advanced Research Techniques Using Google Scholar
Everyone knows Google, and it certainly seems that everyone uses Google. But have you taken advantage of Google Scholar, the free search engine that features full text or metadata of scholarly literature?
Join Maisha Duncan, instruction librarian, to explore research scenarios in which Google Scholar can help to further the research process during this workshop on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at 2:30 p.m.
During the workshop, you will conduct an effective search in Google Scholar, identify how citation searching can be facilitated by the search engine and create a search alert. In addition to these skills you can apply to your own searches, the workshop will introduce key features of the search engine, such as citation counts, related articles and advanced search; and it will highlight the benefits of Google Scholar’s Profile, Alerts and Metrics tools.
While workshops are free of charge, registration is required as seating is limited. This workshop is open to UD students, faculty and staff.
