Tracking the Research Conversation

Google Scholar Search

Searching Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature.  Tell Google Scholar you’re affiliated with Colorado Mesa and you’ll be linked to resources in our databases:

1. On the Google Scholar homepage, click on the Settings link from the menu at the top of the page
2. Select Library links from the left-hand menu 
3. Search “Colorado Mesa University” in the Show library access links box 
4. Check the box next to Colorado Mesa University—Full-text available
5. Click Save to save this setting

Google Scholar can be used to search on a topic, but it is especially effective for tracking down a specific article.  If the article is available in full text through the library databases, a link will be provided to the full text.
