Google Scholar indexes hundreds of open access and subscription journals, books from the WorldCat database, conference papers and proceedings, white papers, and other academic materials posted on the Web. Google Scholar is not as comprehensive as many subject databases, but it is useful in that it provides one handy place to search across many different disciplines and subject areas.

You can customize your user preferences in Google Scholar to show Find it! links for some materials. Click the Scholar Preferences link (Settings gear icon) and scroll down to Library Links. Search for "Arkansas" in the Find Library box and check the option for University of Arkansas Libraries (Find it!). Save your preferences and perform a search. You will see Find it! links for those items that may be available in full text at our library.

Note that Google's links to our holdings are often slightly out of date, depending on the last Google crawl of our holdings.
