Journal Article Search Engines


Our search engine databases are not your normal "Google-like" search engines!  Our library search engines have access to scientific journals that are not always found through Google Scholar (they are locked behind pay walls - pay walls that we have paid for and are therefore open to you) - and are journals that contain professional, peer-reviewed scientific articles.  These are the places you want to search when you are looking for real scientific papers, and when you want to find them full-text right away - -  not just links that take you to places where they show you the first paragraph of the article, then try to charge you $40 to read the whole thing........
