Google Scholar & Find it @ MU

What is Google Scholar?


Google Scholar includes content from journal publishers’ sites, article databases, book catalogs and other realms of the Invisible Web not covered by the Google search engine. Google Scholar debuted in 2004 and is currently in Beta, which means its features and functionality continue to evolve.


What is Find it @ MU?


Find It @ MU is a link resolver that appears in many of the library's subscription databases. It connects MU students, faculty and staff to online articles, print holdings in the campus libraries and interlibrary loan services.
