Got Social?

    Hi AJ,

    Nice presentation. I think you said recently that you are now ABD. Congrats for getting that far. Since you are much further along in the process than I am would you please tell me when you use Google Scholar. I haven’t really used it much and I’m not sure what I might be missing out on. I use my university’s library databases for everything. When I am tackling a new research area I might take a peek out on the Internet to see what has been said in the topic but then re-run the same queries in the university library, seeking peer reviewed journal articles. Can I and should I be doing the same initial search using Google Scholar as part of my initial look-see on the topic?

    I’d appreciate any thoughts you have on the subject as I’m always looking for ways to improve my research techniques.
