Google Scholar Tips
Search within Google Scholar. Use Scholar Preferences to add your college catalog.
Using the Advanced Tab (http://www.google.ca/advanced_search) gives you powerful ways to refine your search. You can use the search boxes to search for an exact wording or phrase (also by “enclosing in quotations”), search using OR, and remove terms you don’t want to include (also by using – before the word or phrase). You can also place the tilde sign (~) in front of your search term to search for synonyms.
Search within a site. Example, "risk management" site:http://www.pdcnet.org/
Search limit to domain. Example, pesticides + environment site:.gov, .org
Search by file type (.pdf, .ppt, .doc, .rtf, .swf), restrict by date, restrict by region.
