Google Scholar

Google Scholar allows you to search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.

Butler University Libraries participates in Google's library links program. What this means is that on-campus users at Butler will see additional links in Google Scholar that direct them to Butler resources.

Google Tips

TRY THESE TIPS FOR BETTER GOOGLE SEARCH RESULTS!

1.  Use the Advanced Search option in Google. This allows you to get more specific search results because you can select filters such as dates, file types (ex:  ppt), and domains (ex:  .edu). You will find the Advanced Search option under "Settings" on the Google basic search screen.

2.  Use the Search Tools option that appears below the search box on the results page.  This allows you to narrow or refine your results.

3.  When searching for business information, try combining your keywords with words such as "report" or "study" to learn about research conducted on your topic.

4.  Find professional associations by adding the word "association" to your business keyword search.

See the table below for other shortcuts you can use in a Google search to refine your results.
