Google Scholar

Google Scholar (2007- ) was developed in response to numerous calls for a more academic/scholarly search engine. Google Scholar ( allows users to freely obtain the full-text of content posted by the copyright holder in open access format. Google Scholar also provides an option for libraries to share their print and electronic/online book and journal holdings with Google so that users will be confronted with fewer paywalls. These Google Scholar "editions" combine what is free or open access with that which is licensed or subscribed to by a particular library to which the user is a current faculty, staff or student.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
