Q: Why should I use the Databases over Google Scholar?


A:

There are a number of reasons why you should use databases over Google Scholar:

  • Google Scholar does not provide access to many materials accessible via the full range of databases provided by UNSW. Google Scholar only searches a small percentage of our databases.
  • By simply using Google Scholar you are missing out on a huge pool of academic and scholarly resources. You will get better results if you search these databases separately.
  • Databases are better structured, organised and more tightly knitted to academic material.
