|About Google Scholar
Google Scholar is a subset of Google Web Search that covers all subjects: science, the social sciences and humanities. You can search for scholarly literature, legal documents, books and reports. You can access Google Scholar directly or through the links located in LibGuides.
Many articles are in fulltext and available to anyone on the web, while others may be available through the library's databases. Google Scholar does link to versions of papers and articles that are on publishers's web sites that require a fee to view; in this instance, use the library's interlibrary loan service If a site is asking you to purchase the the article. Be aware that not all search results in Google Scholar will provide scholarly material.
Google Scholar will also provide a list of references under each citation. These citations can lead you to other resources on your research topic.
DUE TO COVID-19 RELATED INTERLIBRARY LOAN DELAYS, PLEASE ORDER YOUR ITEMS AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE
If Stonehill does not own the book, book chapter, or article you need, you can order it through our Interlibrary Loan Department. However, due to COVID-19 safety measures (the closure of campuses across the country and the need to quarantine borrowed books), it is possible we will be unable to obtain some requested print material.
We suggest that you, if possible, request chapters from books. Book chapters can be processed electronically and sent to you as PDFs. Requested journal articles are also sent electronically, and their delivery should not be significantly delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
