Google Scholar

Google Scholar searches the internet for articles, books, reviews, and other publications. Not all publications are indexed in Google Scholar and not all results are scholarly or peer-reviewed. We recommend you use Google Scholar as a supplemental a tool to help with your research. 

Did you know that you can find full-text articles available through William James College Library's subscriptions on Google Scholar? It takes just a minute to set up!

What happens if it isn't available in WJC Library?

You can easily use Google Scholar to request materials via our interlibrary loan service. Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a free service the library provides to supplement our collection. If the library does not own or subscribe to an item that you want, you may request it via ILL and we will do our best to obtain it from another library. Through ILL you may borrow books, articles, chapters, and other items not available at WJC Library. All current students, faculty, and staff have an ILL account set up and ready to use.

Where available, click on the double right arrows (1) and then on Resources @ WJC (2). A new page opens that prompts you to order via interlibrary loan. Click on that, check that the form is filled in completely, and click on submit.
