Find with Google Scholar

What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles. Search results may be from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations. Set Library Links for Cal Poly to access materials the library has subscribed to.

 Articles available through a Kennedy Library-paid subscription will appear with the words "Find It at Cal Poly" to the right or hidden under the "More" link.
