Many of the articles you pull up in Google Scholar are available through our online journal collections. To get quick and easy access, you must go to Sawyer Library's Google Scholar, which runs through our proxy server, so you can authenticate as a Suffolk user and get free access to otherwise locked articles.

Find the Google Scholar link in the Databases A-Z list under our databases tab in the center of the "Search Library resources" box on the Sawyer Library homepage.

Here's a useful tip: Click on the drop-down triangle at the end of the Google Scholar search box to open Advanced Search.

The Advanced Search allows you to indicate an author you want, look for an exact phrase or specify a date range.

Although there are a lot of papers and articles in Google Scholar, it is not necessarily the best way to do academic research.  Consider searching through some of our databases.  If you are unclear about which databases to use, you can visit the Reference desk, email sawlib@suffolk.edu, or call us at 617-573-8532 for assistance. If you cannot reach us, the Sawyer Library Research Guides are great alternatives to help you locate a variety of resources for your research.
