Syncing GoogleScholar With ODU Resources

If you like using GoogleScholar for research, here are a few tips that will make it even easier! You can configure your settings to link to ODU-subscribed Resources and to sync to EndNote.

When using GoogleScholar, keep in mind:

  • It doesn't find everything, but it will find resources that databases don't include. It's best to use both!
  • It ranks results differently than databases, and you'll see older, more cited articles appear towards the top of your results.
  • For more about using GoogleScholar for research, see our in-depth help guide!
