Google can be an excellent source for finding research materials. While it is not a replacement for searching in the Library's subscription article databases, Google can be an effective tool for finding scholarly materials that will help your research. Did you know that you can set up Google Scholar to link to the U of I Library's electronic journal subscriptions? Or that you can use Google Books to explore a book before you Interlibrary Loan it? We will share our strategies for using Google Scholar, Google Books, and other Google tools to supplement your research.
