Google Scholar is great for a quick search for a very specific item, but with more general searches, often retrieves too many irrelevant items and misses important publications that are only available through database subscriptions.
From on-campus, Google Scholar will link to the library's full-text holdings, if available.To display links from off-campus, go to scholar.google.com, select Settings then Library Links. In the search box, enter Florida Institute of Technology, select the correct check box, and Save.
