Description Google Scholar retrieves links to papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations. Google Scholar is different from Google because it searches only databases that have scholarly content. WHEN YOU ARE OFF-CAMPUS AND YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE FULL TEXT OF ARTICLES, YOU MUST START FROM A LINK FORMULATED LIKE THE ONE IN THIS RECORD IN ORDER TO BE RECOGNIZED AS A MEMBER OF THE GULC COMMUNITY. Google Scholar also includes patents and patents applications from the USPTO as well as the full text of legal opinions issued by state and federal courts.
User Support To see all the databases where the cited article appears, go to the "Scholar Preferences" link on the Google Scholar pagae and type "Georgetown" into the "Library Links" box. Choose to see the "Full Text@Georgetown Law" links. Now you will be able to get to the full text of more articles from on and off campus.
  To be able to export citations from Google Scholar into RefWorks, click on Google Scholar's "Scholar Preferences" link. Scroll to the bottom of the page and choose to "Show links to import citations into RefWorks." Now you will see the "Import into RefWorks" link beneath each citation.
