Google Scholar

Improve your research by making use of all of Google Scholar's features and abilities.


Clicking the Cite link below a search result will create a citation for that source in APA, MLA, and Chicago. Always double check your citations.

Finding the cite link


If you are working on an ongoing project, you can set alerts that let you know when new sources are identified by Google Scholar. To the left of your search results, there will be a "Create Alert" link that you can set up to send you an email whenever new results are added for that search.

Your alerts can be managed from the homepage of Google Scholar by clicking the Alerts link at the top of the page.

My Library

How to save to My Library in Google Scholar
