Scholarfy Your Google Search

Google is great as a starting point for your research but when it comes to projects and assignments, you will need more reliable information to get good marks.

Google Scholar is a good way to find this reliable information. In fact, Google Scholar can even link you directly to the library databases – just look for the Find it @ TP links in your search results.

And the Scholarfy bookmarklet makes reaching Google Scholar a breeze. This bookmarklet (or small app) is stored as a web browser bookmark that allows you to transform a plain Google search into a Google Scholar search with only one click – almost like magic!

Install the bookmark, conduct a Google search, then click on the Scholarfy bookmarklet on your Chrome bookmark bar (or from your IE Favorites) to instantly change your Google search into a Google Scholar search.
