Google Scholar – A Personal Journey

September 26, 2009

The Krafty Librarian has taken on Google Scholar and discusses the good and bad of its search results from a medical librarian’s perspective. This led me on a vanity search of my own publications. Good news – by searching for “Sharp JW” & “Cleveland Clinic” most of my previous publications came up. What was interesting was to see citations. I had no idea how may articles and books used some of my publications. For instance, a search of “Sharp JW” & “Prostate Cancer” shows many citations in books especially from some of my quality of life and internet and cancer articles. Also came across an abstract on LVADs and quality of life I had forgotten about.

While there may be some limitations of Google Scholar, some of the features are a real plus.
