Can I use Google Scholar rather than Ebsco to find information?

As a student at RNN Group, you can access our subscription journals through Google Scholar, as well as lots of other free content.  It also gives you the added feature of your own ‘library’. When you find articles you want to read, you can click ‘save’ and these will be saved to your online library for future reference.

  • It is another way to access the EBSCO content provided to you through the library
  • All of the results will be of a reliable scholarly nature, unlike a general web search
  • It provides another way to search for reliable, scholarly material to support your studies.

When you are on campus, sign in to Google Scholar using your Gmail account.

This will then let you have the same access to the ejournals provided to you by the library when you are off campus.

Look for the RNN Library resource link to the right of your search results - this will take you to the article you want to read.
