Google Scholar Tips

TIP: Add the Harvard Library Bookmark to your browser to link to full text available though the library.

Get better focused results by using Advanced Google Scholar (go to Google Scholar and click on the menu link in the upper left)

Advanced Search lets you specify words that must be present ("all"), words that are part of exact phrases, and a group of words where at least one must be present in your results.
