GoogleScholar's focus is scholarly and academic articles and books. It indexes the metadata of scholarly literature, and if there is a freely available PDF, it will be posted. If you still need more resources after using Kettering's QuickSearch to look inside our databases, GoogleScholar is a great place to find other academic papers out in the world.
GoogleScholar can link to Kettering's databases, showing you if Kettering has access to an article that might not be freely posted otherwise on GoogleScholar. If you are signed into your Kettering Gmail, then the process is automatic.
If you'd like to set it up on your personal Gmail account, please follow these instructions:
LINKING KETTERING + GOOGLE SCHOLAR
Did you know you can use Google Scholar to search Kettering databases for articles and journals? It should automatically work if you are logged into Google with your Kettering email address.
If it's not working, after logging in, just go to Settings > Library Links from the Google Scholar homepage and type in Kettering University. Tick the check box and click Save. If we have an article, you'll see the 'Full-Text @ Kettering' link in your Google Scholar search results.

Google Scholar also has an extension for the Chrome Browser worth checking out.
If you find an article in GoogleScholar that would be perfect for your research, but there is no PDF posted publicly, the Kettering Library can obtain it for you through InterLibrary Loan. Check the box under the navigation bar on this page for the link to request an article.
