Google Scholar Search

You can use Google Scholar to find articles in our print journals by putting the title of that journal in the "Return articles published in" slot in advanced search.   Once you find an article you need, just go to our print magazine section in the main library or our back issue shelves in the "library office" to get it.

To enable links for digital content to which Aquinas Library subscribes, add Aquinas College Library as a library link under Settings in the top left dropdown menu.  WARNING: Not all open access articles found through Google Scholar are credible.  Use the How to Evaluate Sources guide in the help tab, or simply use our library's catalog search which also searches over 300 carefully evaluated open access collections.

Caveat: Google Scholar is best for libraries with extensive database subscriptions for access to content.
