Google Vs. Google Scholar

What is the difference between google and google scholar?


Google is a broad based search engine that looks at many sources. Google Scholar looks for scholarly literature based on the results of research or studies. Library databases can contain a wealth of resources not included in Google Scholar so do not rely on it to find all of your research. In the research process you need to find information from a variety of resources.
