What is Google Scholar?  

Google Scholar searches academic literature found in journal websites, university repositories, academic publishers and other websites that Google identifies as scholarly. While some scholarly resources are available free online, many are not. Google Scholar is just one resource, and should be used in conjunction with other Hewes Library scholarly resources.

For best results, configure Google Scholar to identify and access materials found through Monmouth College's licensed resources (see directions).
