Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a simple way to search for scholarly literature outside of things found in a subscription database. You can find information from universities, professional organizations, online repositories and other websites. Results may include peer-reviewed journal articles, dissertations, conference papers, and more. It is important to carefully review the source of information to ensure that you are using a trusted source.

How to add the "Find@RegisCollege" link

Link your Google Scholar search results to the Regis College Library’s collection

When you use Google Scholar without setting up your library links, many resources will appear to be behind paywalls. By adding the “Find@RegisCollege” link, Google Scholar will automatically let you know if the library has full text access to an article. To add this link:

1.  Go to Google Scholar

2.  Click on the set of three horizontal lines in the left corner of the page;

3.  Select Settings;

4.  Select Library Links;

5.  Search for Regis College and check off the options for "Regis College Library - Find@RegisCollege" and "Open WorldCat - Library Search;"

6.  Click Save.

Search Tips

Locating the Full Text of Articles
Abstracts are freely available for most of the articles but reading the entire article may require a subscription. Here are a few things to try:

  1. Click a library link, "FindIt@Regis", to the right of the search result;
  2. Click a link labeled [PDF] to the right of the search result;
  3. Click "All versions" under the search result and check out the alternative sources;
  4. Click "Related articles" or "Cited by" under the search result to explore similar articles.

Finding recent papers
Your search results are normally sorted by relevance, not by date. To find newer articles, try the following options in the left sidebar:

  1. Click "Since Year" to show only recently published papers, sorted by relevance;
  2. Click "Sort by date" to show just the new additions, sorted by date;
  3. Click the envelope icon to have new results periodically delivered by email.
