Google Scholar Search allows users to search for scholarly articles. Searching can be done by author name, publication, publication date, and subject area.
Cite this as you would a web site: the book's author is the web site's author; the book's title is the title of the website; Google Books is the title of the overall website. Google is the publisher. The book's copyright date is the date of publication; and remember to write down the date you looked at it.
Academic Research Guides
Ready, Set, Research is a LibGuide created by an academic librarian at Modesto Junior College in California. This guide covers the basics in how to begin and complete your research at an academic level. Some information (such as access to databases) is specific to the Modesto Junior College community, but the overall guide is helpful in grounding oneself before and during the research process.
This tutorial, created by scholars at the University of Newcastle in Australia, guides users through the steps of the research and information gathering process. Helpful quizzes along the way allow users to keep track of their own understanding.
