Google Search Tools

Explore books, scholarly works, and newspaper archives with these Google search tools.

Google Books

In Google Books Advanced Search you can search for full-length books that are in the public domain and available for free download and printing. Those same books can also be embedded into your blog or website. To find full-length, public domain books, go to books.google.com then select public domain in the advanced search options menu.

In the past I’ve given my US History students an assignment in which they have to read and analyze a book about about the Civil War. As I have more students than our school's library has books about the Civil War, the huge listing of books about the Civil War that are in the public domain is very handy for my students.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is designed to help students research works from scholarly journals, patent applications, and legal opinions.

Google Scholar allows you to read full text legal opinions from US federal and state district courts, appellate courts, and the Supreme Court. You can search for opinions by case name (like Miranda v. Arizona) or by topic (like school busing).

Google Scholar's addition of legal opinions could be very useful for teachers and students of US civics. Google Scholar could help schools reduce or eliminate the need to purchase updated legal opinion books every few years.

Find Google Scholar at http://scholar.google.com

Google News

Google News search allows students to scour the web for news stories from Google’s trusted sources. Students can refine searches by date to look at current stories (default setting) or to look back at news stories from years ago. Students can also refine their searches by specifying a particular news source and or a particular author.

Google News Fast Flip presents news stories in a visually- appealing magazine rack-style. Students can click through the covers to find a news story.

The Google News wizard makes it easy to customize the look and the content displayed on your blog. Once you have selected the news content you want displayed and the size of the display, simply copy the code generated for you and paste it into your blog.
