What is Google Scholar?

"Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites" ("About Google Scholar").

Search Google Scholar to access many journal articles made available to you by the UC Merced Library.
