Google introduces new search tool: Google Scholar

The folks at Google have created a search engine especially for scholars, called Google scholar, which “helps users search scholarly literature such as peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports.” Right now the site is in beta-test, so don’t expect full functionality. But it may, in time, provide easier access for those of us who want fine-tuned information about our scholarly interests, without having to turn on the full fire-hose that is!

An article describing the project can be found on Google’s blog site.
