Google and Google Scholar

In addition to the Stanford Encyclopedia, PhilPapers and Philosopher's Index, Google Scholar is a great way to find scholarly articles or book citations.  After searching, look for features in your results that can help you find related articles:

  • The Cited By feature will show you who cited an article to help you gauge the importance of the article or book in that scholarly conversation.  
  • Related Articles may direct you to other important works. 

Linking Google Scholar to Buswell's collection can help you find your results more efficiently. The PDF below shows you how to link Google Scholar to Buswell Library so you can check if we have access to a resource.
