Google Scholar

We are currently experiencing an issue with Google Scholar searches. We are investigating this issue and suggest accessing Google Scholar directly and configuring CSU as your library in the settings menu.

Google Scholar provides a basic search for scholarly literature. It searches across many disciplines and sources. Search results will include articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.

Your search results may also include grey literature.

Results are ranked depending on “where it was published, who it was written by, as well as how often and how recently it has been cited in other scholarly literature”.
