Searching the Scientific Literature: Why Google Doesn’t Go Deep Enough
Librarian for Science and Engineering, Milton S. Eisenhower Library
Johns Hopkins University
January 18, 2021
3-5 PM ET
Though Google Scholar has its merits, a comprehensive subject search requires the use of multiple scholarly resources when searching for relevant scientific references. This workshop will focus on the strengths and weaknesses of five important subscription based databases; and how to conduct comprehensive and efficient searches related to both chemistry and engineering.
The focus will be advanced searching with Google Scholar, Compendex, REAXYS, SciFinder-n, Scopus, and Web Of Science.
