How to use different library databases: Google Scholar
Google Scholar is a robust search engine that indexes many different websites and databases containing scholarly articles and publications. If you are looking for a journal article on a particular topic, Google Scholar is a great place to start.
Google Scholar is different from Google in that it returns results as citations instead of web pages. Users of Google Scholar can read select articles through Google Scholar or use these citations to find the articles through other sources, such the NYBG Library.
If you search Google Scholar when you are at NYBG you will have access to the electronic resources provided by the library. This includes articles from databases such as JSTOR and BioOne.
Google Scholar staff suggest that the best way for articles to be included on the site is for them to be added to a website, either personal or institutional repository. Details can be found above. (Note that this page does not address questions related to copyright. Please be aware of what copyright permissions you have to share an article before doing so.)
This guide includes screenshots that illustrate how to set a preferred library in Google Scholar. Users can follow these steps to set the Mertz Library as their preferred library. (Note that the library's name in Google Scholar is "New York Botanical garden - Find it @ Mertz Library."
