Google Scholar is a search tool from Google, separate from its main search engine, with its own URL (http://scholar.google.com). Its purpose (says Google) is “to search specifically for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from all broad areas of research.”
Google Scholar is an excellent resource; however, use the following link to access Google Scholar in order to assure you that you are accessing Emory's resources in tandem with your searches.
