Google Scholar Brings Relevance to Scholarly Search

Google Scholar is another great tool provided by Google. Scholar searches the domain of academic literature. Results are returned ranked relevance. Very handy. Certainly much better than the usual list returned ordered by date of publication.

Many returned paper citations include a Cited by xx link. Click the link and a list of articles that have cited the work are returned. Snazz!

Google Scholar assumes you have access to an article delivery service, such as EBSCO; only rarely are links to downloadable versions of the papers returned. Over all, Google has launched another tool that is darned handy.

Speaking of search, check out A9, if you haven't already.
