To create a Google Scholar Library, sign into your Google account before searching on Scholar.Google.com, then just click "add to my library" when you find an article you want to save for future reference.
Your saved items appear in your Google Scholar Library where you can apply labels to them and sort them. Google will also generate citations and do related searches very easily.
While high school students can get by with sloppy search logic and terms on Google most of the time, better searches obviously produce better results in Google Scholar. Serious students will find that this is worth playing around with, though, because it's sophisticated and very satisfying for people who go deep when they research.
Joyce Valenza created this tutorial on how to effectively search Google News for historical articles. The tutorial is great, but she used Tildee to create it. Tildee looks pretty good, but it slaps obnoxious ads on the end of the tutorial, and I am not a fan, though I do understand the need for revenue.
You're probably used to downloading email attachments, but each of those files takes time to download, eats up space on your device, and can get buried deep inside your "Downloads" folder. With the update to Gmail, you can skip that whole process. Instead, you can view attachments and save files directly to Google Drive without ever leaving Gmail, making it easy to access them later from whatever device you’re on—computer, phone or tablet.
The next time you open an email with attachments, you’ll see new previews of the files at the bottom of the email, from photos and videos to spreadsheets and PDFs.
When you click on one of those previews, a full-screen view of the image or document will appear. You can read, search for a particular phrase, and even browse through multiple attachments right in Gmail.
You can now also save your attachments directly to Drive simply by clicking the Drive button that appears when you hover over the preview. Of course, if you prefer to download the attachment to your computer, you can—just click the arrow button.
This new attachment experience is available on desktop and will be rolling out over the next week. If you’re one of the more than 120 million active Drive users, you know that saving your files to Drive lets you get to them from any computer, phone or tablet. And if you aren’t taking advantage of Drive just yet, give it a try with your next Gmail attachment.
Eli is a thief--a clever, clever one: fearless and mouthy. I spent part of my summer reading the five Eli Monpress books, wherein Eli, along with his friends and companions, saves the world, among other things. It's nonstop action, and I thought maybe some of CGHS's fantasy fans would like going along for the literary ride. Paula is reading the books now and liking them lots.
