Has Google upgraded from the friend zone? I think yes!

It’s Week 8 and I know some of you have probably already done your first wave of assessments but I have a tip for you that could help you.

I get really sick of jumping between my university’s library and Google Scholar when searching for resources for my assignment. And I am sure you feel the same too but I have good news! You can link those two together with Google Scholar to make your life so much easier.

Step 1. Go to Google Scholar. You can do this by googling ‘Google Scholar‘ and clicking on the link, or typing scholar.google.com.au in your search engine or you could just click on this link if you are really lazy http://www.scholar.google.com.au.
