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, be sure to change your settings and library links (in the left hand corner) and add in Emory as your institution so that you can more easily connect to Emory subscribed content. The "Web of Science" citations are particularly useful. Search among the cited articles to find relevant content.
Google Scholar's strengths are that it is multidisciplinary, easy to search and provides a quick way to locate articles which cite other articles.
