How to Use Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a great tool for searching across multiple Douglas Library resources for full text materials. Think of this as one of our many databases, and using it will be a piece of cake!

Remember: To use Google Scholar to access Douglas Library materials, you must navigate to Google Scholar from our Databases page and log in using your CCC username and password.

Steps to using Google Scholar:

1. From the Douglas Library homepage, click on the Databases link.
2. Locate Google Scholar in the Databases A-Z list.
3. Enter your username and password at the EZproxy login page. (You may not see this if you have already logged in to use other library databases.)
4. Once you log in you will arrive at the Google Scholar search page.
5. From here, you can search using the basic interface or you can click on Advanced Scholar Search to further limit your results.
6. Once you submit your search terms, you will retrieve a results list.
7. Within this list, materials marked "Full-text @ Clinton CC" in the right side margin of the page are available to you.
