Why Articles?

Sample article

Question: What value lies in articles?  Why, for example, would a researcher choose a journal article over a book?

Answer: Journal articles offer recent, in-depth research on a topic and frequently focus on very narrow topics.

Why Google Scholar?

Question: Why would you use Google Scholar?

Answer: Google Scholar identifies scholarly research materials from a broad range of subject areas.

Google Scholar offers a "cited by" feature - it will display a list of documents which cited the document you originally retrieved. This can be useful in determing how influential a source has been.  The list only includes documents available in Google Scholar, though.

Look for the Find Full-Text @ TU link to access available full-text articles.  Or, go into the preferences of Google Scholar and select Temple University from Library Links.
