What About Google Scholar?

Google Scholar is essentially a large listing of articles, with some duplication. Few articles are full-text in Google Scholar itself. (Those would come from free journal websites.) Google Scholar searches with a looser "keyword" method, not subject headings. If you have tried other databases with little success and have consulted with a librarian for search tips, Google Scholar could be useful for those "needle in a haystack" topics.

Here's a catch: Google Scholar will easily link you to full-text articles in the SUNY Adirondack Library's databases if you are using an on-campus computer to search. (Google Scholar uses IP address based authentication to know which databases are available to the searcher.) After you do a search with an on-campus computer and review the citations, click the three-bar dropdown menu on the top left > Settings > Library Links > type in SUNY Adirondack > add check mark > Save. Your searches will include full-text results from SUNY Adirondack Library databases.
