Guide to academic search

(3 December 2015) This guide was created by the curator of the JURN search-engine. The guide lists various free search-engines and tools. Specifically, those tools likely to lead to open material useful for UK students and researchers in the arts and humanities.

The search engines and tools are organised as Q&A.

“How can I search globally across all of the world’s academic repositories?”

“I want to search inside millions of modern non-fiction books”

“I’m researching a historical topic, and I want to search out-of-copyright books and journals (generally pre-1926)”
