Create a Library of Google Scholar Search Results

As I mentioned last month in my post about creating Google Scholar alerts, Google Scholar is one of the research tools that high school students often overlook. Last week Google added a new Google Scholar option that can help students organize their research. You can now create libraries of articles that you find through Google Scholar.

To create a Google Scholar Library sign into your Google account before searching on then just click "save" when you find an article you want save for future reference. Your saved items appear in your Google Scholar Library where you can apply labels to them and sort them.

Google Scholar indexes scholarly, peer-reviewed academic papers, journals, theses, books, and court opinions. These are materials that students usually won't find through, Bing, or Yahoo search.
