Finding Full Text in Google Scholar
Hi, you're watching "finding full text with Google scholar," my name is Lauren Pressley and I'll show you how to do it. Right now we're at the regular Google homepage, so we're going to say that we want to find Google scholar. Now you can see we're at the Google scholar search page, and let's say we're really interested in the future of education. So, I've typed in that phrase, but something you should know about Google is that it doesn't matter if you use the non-important words, so I'll just say future and education and click search. You can see here that we have some book results and hopefully we have some articles, so this is a journal, so this would be an article. So, let's say you're interested in this book, The Culture of Education. If you do a library search you're directed to a catalog that searches not just our library, but other local libraries. So, if you're doing the search on campus it will show you that Wake Forest University owns a copy. But, it will also tell you that you can find it at Winston-Salem State, UNCG, Bennett, and so on. So from there, if you wanted, you can click on our name and then you can get the call number for finding it in our library. But let's say you're interested in finding an article, and let's say you're interested in this past, present, and future of computer-tailored nutrition education. If you click on the WFU Full Text options, you'll see that we do have some articles, so we'll click there, and there's the article that we found in Google scholar. So if you click on the PDF, you can see that this is the very article that we found in Google scholar. As long as you are on campus, Google scholar should know that you are affiliated with our library and redirect you to our resources. So that's how you use Google scholar to find full text information. If you have any questions, or you are not getting the same results, you can ask a librarian. Please contact us at zsr.wfu.edu/ask.
