Google Scholar

Google Scholar allows you to search specifically for scholarly material on the web.  However, it is important to be aware that Google Scholar searches both peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed information, as well as requiring you to pay for some articles.

Did you know that many Google Scholar results are available for free to TAFE students and staff through our Library subscription databases?

You can easily setup Google Scholar to just display articles which are available in  TAFE NSW Library databases.  Instructions on how to link Google Scholar to TAFE NSW Libraries are available by clicking here 

Need any help with Google Scholar? Call into your local TAFE Library or click here to Ask A Librarian online for help.
