This specialized Google resource supplements the proprietary databases such as ACM, ScienceDirect, etc. Google describes this as:

What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.”

Please note: On campus users can use the “Find Text @ CSUEB” link to access or request articles. You can use the “Scholar Preferences” to use the Find Text link. To do so, click on “Scholar Preferences” in the upper right of the scholar.google.com screen, then enter Cal State University, East Bay in the Library Links box. Click on Save Preferences.

arXiv go! Available Online

from the arXiv primer: “arXiv is an openly accessible, moderated repository for scholarly articles in specific scientific disciplines. Material submitted to arXiv is expected to be of interest, relevance, and value to those disciplines. arXiv reserves the right to reject or reclassify any submission. Submissions are reviewed by expert moderators to verify that they are topical and refereeable scientific contributions that follow accepted standards of scholarly communication (as exemplified by conventional journal articles).” Please note: the papers available via arXiv are essentially in pre-publication and therefore not fully peer-reviewed. See also http://arxiv.org/corr/home for a different interface for the same database. The subject classification follows the ACM taxonomy (http://arxiv.org/corr/subjectclasses).

ScienceDirect go! info

Indexing and full text to over 1,100 journals in 16 fields of science including chemistry, materials science, economics, business & management science, physics, social and behavioural sciences, clinical medicine and more.
