UCLA now subscribes to three new databases from Proquest!
Check out these new sources!
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. Users will need to set-up a proxy server to gain access to Google Scholar.
