There is nothing substantially new, but the settings and the advanced search have moved to the ‘drawer icon’ in the top left.
Google Scholar provides a simple way to search for scholarly literature - particularly journal articles. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions (USA only), from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.
It is also good at taking you straight to a pdf copy, where it can. If you are off-campus, we recommend that you change the settings so that Scholar knows you are from the University of Leicester. Go to Settings, then click on Library links. Type "University of Leicester" and click search. Tick all the options that appear and then click Save. This will increase the number of articles you can access.
