Google Scholar

If you want to maximize your effectiveness in researching academically relevant information. (I.e. information that scholars have taken the time to write and revise), use Google Scholar when you search.  Simply type scholar.google.com in your web browser, or click here: http://scholar.google.com and you will be able to find references to academic articles.  If you are registered at a college or university, you may be able to download the articles directly.

If scholarly writing isn’t a priority — use regular Google.  (Blogs, wikis, and other informal information sources will appear).
