This is a way of using Google Scholar effectively. <BR>Google searches everything, Google Scholar <BR>searches journals and journals are what your teachers want to see in your papers. So don’t <BR>use Google, use Google Scholar<BR> I have done a search from home on autism <BR>treatment and I find journal articles, number one is <BR>from a journal, number two is open access but as I go down the list, I see very little full text here. <BR>What I have to do is track down where that <BR>journal was. There is a simpler way of doing that and that is <BR>going through my library. Article databases by title <BR>and type. I just look under the G for Google Scholar and then I login, you will have to login.<BR>Now, same search, and what we see on the right <BR>hand is where can I get this. This is the link to full text. There is that same pdf we saw before, we <BR>also see articles with Where can I get this. <BR>Select Where can I get this and it shows our link to holdings. We see that we can get full text of <BR>this article from Health Source.<BR>There is the fulltext that you can print, save, it’s yours to do with as you like. This is not only my <BR>library, this is from many other libraries. Simon <BR>Fraser University databases has Google Scholar as a database and so does University of Toronto <BR>Libraries. In this case, they put it under popular <BR>databases, there it is Google Scholar. Then you just connect to the resource.<BR>Look for the list of databases in your library and <BR>then look for Google Scholar. That way, it links to the<BR> journals and it saves you an awful lot of time.<BR>
