Google Scholar performs a Google search of scholarly content on the internet. You may not have free access to all of the articles found in a Google Scholar search. However, you can check if the library has access to the article by searching the article title in RVOneSearch or using Full Text Finder to search for the journal that published the article.
You can set Google Scholar to recognize that you have access to certain articles because you are an RV student.
Your search results will now include a "Find It @ RVCC" link on the right side of the screen for any articles that you may be able to access through our library subscriptions.
Remember that because it is still a Google search, you may get an unmanageable number of results or results that aren't relevant to your research. Google Scholar can be a useful tool when you are not having much luck in the library databases and need to figure out what kinds of journals have articles related to your topic.
