Citation Searching: Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a search engine for scholarly material but it has its limitations. You can set preferences in Google Scholar so that it will link to the Polk State College Library databases.

Google cannot find all of the information available online. The information on the invisible web -- or the parts of the web that Google's search crawlers cannot access -- is best accessed through the Library's catalog and databases
