What is Google Scholar

What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar is a web resource that allows users to search for journal articles, citations, theses, preprints and book availability on the web. Materials located using Google Scholar come from a wide variety of sources, including:

        - Selected academic publishers
        - Selected Professional society publishers
        - Preprint repositories
        - Universities
        - Scholarly articles available across the open web

Logging in as a CWU affiliate will provide access at no charge to many of the articles that you might otherwise have to purchase. You can do this by going to "Settings" on the Google Scholar homepage. From the left menu, select "Library Links" and enter "Central Washington University" in the search window. Check off the CWU box and select "Save".  Performing these steps will give you access to a much wider variety of articles because of your affiliation with CWU.
