Is Google your go-to search engine? Are you using it to find articles for your research or class projects? Try using Google Scholar to find relevant materials across disciplines in articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions. Sources searched include academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar can be made even more effective by setting your preferences to USC. Your results will contain links to the full text in the journals and documents to which USC subscribes.
To set preferences for USC:
• Begin at the Google Scholar home page
• Click on “Scholar Preferences” to the right of the “Search” button
• In the Library Links section, enter “USC”, and click “Find Library”.
• Click the “Save Preferences” button at the bottom of the page.
