An article search in the Library Catalog and Google Scholar both let you quickly search across a massive index of scholarly information.

They search different bodies of scholarly content. There is overlap, but there is content findable in the catalog but not Google Scholar, and vice-versa. The two search engines perform relevance ranking in very different ways.


Some features unique to the library catalog article search:
  • Results are reflective of the FGCU Library collection — as a library patron, you have access to mostly everything you can find, with the exception of when you choose uBorrow, or "Search other university libraries" in your search.
  • Find print/physical material in the Library collection —all our Library Catalog records and can be used for finding print material and media in the library. Choose the "Books in the Library" facet located on the left side.
  • Useful search refinements:
    • “Limit to articles from peer-review journals”
    • Select item records to email, text print, cite, export
