Google Scholar

A powerful web search engine that indexes scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines

Overview

Google Scholar is a powerful web search engine that indexes scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines. It allows you to search by keyword, author and article title. Google Scholar is useful for conducting simple searches across a broad number of resources. For complex or in-depth searches, we recommend  searching the Drexel University Libraries’ resources via Summon or our individual databases. Our liaison librarians can also offer further assistance to help you get the best results.

You can also access resources licensed by the Libraries through Google Scholar. When Get It@Drexel appears in the search results, this indicates the Libraries offers full-text access to those articles.  Click Get It@Drexel to view the full text of the article.
