Google Scholar is a scholarly search tool from Google, separate from its main search engine.
Its purpose is “to search specifically for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from all broad areas of research.” The full text of many items is available online (either freely or by using the “Find it @ WOU” link), although in some instances abstracts with links to pay-per-view document delivery services are displayed.
To do this on most campus printers:
1. Select File –> Print from your document
2. Choose the printer (e.g., \\krusty\Lab-HLRef)
3. Click the Properties button.
4. On the Paper/Output tab, find in the 2-Sided Printing dropdown menu and select “2-sided print.”
5. Click the OK buttons for the two windows.
Want to be even more efficient? Print 2, 4, or more pages per side on each sheet of paper!
Under Properties, go to the Layout/Watermark tab. Select the number of pages to appear on each side, and select Portrait or Landscape orientation.
Following these simple steps saves a massive amount of resources!
WOU faculty are constantly publishing articles, books, and chapters in books. The library is now offering two ways of locating some of these (shown below): a feed of items appearing in the Ebscohost Databases and a feed of items appearing in Google Scholar. While there is some overlap between the contents of both feeds, each contains unique items.
You can subscribe to them using a reader (such as iGoogle) or visit this page regularly to see what is new.
The feeds are not a comprehensive list of publications and may also include a limited number of scholarly publications that mention WOU or WOU faculty but are not actually written by WOU faculty. In particular, publications by faculty in the humanities may be underrepresented.
