Before you search Google Scholar, please be aware …
Google Scholar is not considered comprehensive for academic content and is a Beta product. The organizations participating in Google Scholar are unknown meaning that some material you may need for your research may not be indexed in Google Scholar, but rather in one or more of our Jennings Library Databases. For the most thorough search of a topic, consult Jennings Library’s subject specific databases which have been carefully selected by us to provide comprehensive, retrospective and current access to scholarly literature. For a complete list, see: Jennings Library Databases.
What is Google Scholar?
Google Scholar provides a way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations. Google Scholar searches a specific subset of Google’s index and covers a wide range of academic content areas; however coverage appears to be strongest in science and technology, and weakest in the humanities.
Our electronic and print journal holdings have been uploaded to Google Scholar, so if Jennings Library owns a journal article you located using Google Scholar full-text, you will see FULL_TEXT@CALDWELL beside the citation.What if I want the full-text of an article I found in Google Scholar?

What about Book results in Google Scholar?
Books results in Google Scholar are identified by [BOOK] preceding the citation title. When you see a book you would like, select the LIBRARY SEARCH link to enter the Find in a Library Worldcat interface. Since Jennings library pays for membership in Worldcat, you can determine if we own the book by selecting search the catalog at your library under the “My Library” box at the top of the right-hand column. If we own the book, you will be linked to the book’s record in CALCAT, our library catalog. If you are off-campus, enter the College zip code (07006) to see the results at Jennings Library.
What about Citation results in Google Scholar?
Citation results are indicated by [CITATION] preceding the citation title and mean the full-text is not available via the Internet (freely or for purchase). These are articles to which other scholarly articles refer.
The full-text may be available in Jennings Library though, so be sure to select the CHECK CALDWELL HOLDINGS link when it appears with a citation.
This will call up the Article Linker to check our full-text holdings in our database and print collection.
