Google Scholar is a specialized online search engine that can help you discover articles, books, and more from academic publishers and research institutions. Google Scholar searches very widely, so not everything you find using it will be available in the Walden Library.
Librarians use Google Scholar frequently, but it is not a replacement for the library databases.
We recommend using Google Scholar to supplement your Walden Library database searches, not replace them.
Relying on Google Scholar alone will cause you to miss important research, and spend a lot of time verifying if an article is peer reviewed. But, it is still a great tool for comprehensive searching!
These guides from Google will give you tips and tricks for using Google Scholar.
