Search the Open Web via Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides the ability to search a selection of the scholarly literature available on the World Wide Web. On the Google Scholar web site, they state: “you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations” (
Many of the results links in Google Scholar will bring you to immediately available full-text documents. For many other documents, content is only available via a subscription service and you may be asked for a username and password, or a credit card number.
You can configure Google Scholar to show you links for those documents to which the Pace Library currently provides full-text access via one or more of our subscription databases. Then, when attempting to access one of these documents, you will be granted access after entering your MyPace Portal username and password.
Go to Google Scholar (, and select the “Scholar Preferences” link next to the Search box.
