Conducting a Search

Google Scholar conducts a search by looking through the world wide web and our Publications list (Find Journals) and returns a list of results. If we have access to an article through our databases, one or both of these links will appear on the right-hand side of your screen:

  • Full-Text @ Bank Street
  • ProQuest Fulltext

Google Scholar Features We Like

We think Google Scholar does a pretty good job of creating citations. Look for the quotation marks symbol under the abstract and copy the APA 7th citation entry. We also like the Cited by feature. The higher the number is an indication of the article’s popularity (an indication that you should probably read it).
