Google Scholar is a search engine that provides links to full-text articles to which the Lehigh University Libraries subscribes or to articles made freely available by the publisher. Scholar also provides articles from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and scholarly articles posted on the Internet. In addition, many articles are available when Lehigh University has a subscription which would work with EZ Proxy. Finally, Scholar provides citations along with abstracts of the article if it is protected by copyright.
A special thanks to my former colleagues at the University Library System at the University of Pittsburgh, who graciously granted permission to use much of the content for this guide.
