Finding scholarly articles

Library homepage

Google Scholar

Also searches across all disciplines; includes quasi-scholarly material, e.g. working papers. Shows citation counts (rough measure of importance of the article).


Note: Make sure to connect Google Scholar back to the U of T Libraries so you don't have to pay for articles.
