Google Scholar is a search engine that searches the web for scholarly literature. Clicking the “Google Scholar” link under the main library search box will authenticate you as a UT student and allow you to view articles for free that might otherwise require payment. Also remember the library subscribes to a number of other databases sorted by subject and type.  See this video tutorial for more information about using Google Scholar.
