It's November and time to hold on to your hats-- no, not because of the wind or rain, which we hope will be coming soon, but because this month's Ask a Librarian workshop is worthy of cyclone force winds. That's right! Back by popular demand, it is time for the Multisearch Face Off, where Multisearch goes head to head against Google Scholar.
What is Multisearch?
EBSCO Discovery Service or Multisearch provides users with an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of an institution's information resources through a single search. Yes, this includes our online catalog, and many of our online databases. Users can find books, academic articles, including peer-reviewed articles, popular magazines and newspapers, and trade publications.
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.
And now you can see why they are a perfect fit to go into the ring with or without their gloves. Google Scholar is free. Multisearch is a database for subscribers only.
Which is better?
