Database Information


Google Scholar



Google Scholar (not to be confused with the Google search engine) searches the portals of a broad range of scholarly publications. It covers the Sciences to a stronger degree than the Humanities. Google Scholar also features a "Cited by" function that links from a source to other sources referencing that source.

Google Scholar links to SMC Library holdings when accessed via your Mikenet account. Look for the "Check for Full Text" link following an article title.
