About Google Scholar

Google Scholar is Google's scientific search engine. Using Google Scholar, instead of regular Google, leads you to reliable, scholarly information. Unfortunately, the full text of the articles may not be available. 

Note, though, that there are two major exceptions:

  • Content owned by Zuyd Library
  • Open Access Journal articles

How to link Google Scholar to the Zuyd content

About Google Advanced Search

Web search engines like Google return a high quantity of results from the full range of sources available on the web. Though temptingly familiar, it is usually not recommended as the best place to start scholarly research. Even so, your search can be more effective by using the Advanced Search Screen.

The infoclip below will show you how to use Google Advanced Search. | Disclaimer | Over Zuyd Bibliotheek
