LIC Notes: New Research Tool in Google Scholar

Google Scholar has added a new function to help users organize their research. The “My library” tool allows you to save articles to your personal collection, which you can later access any time you are signed in to your Google account. You can also apply subject labels to articles, enabling you to quickly find material related to specific projects. For more information, please take a look at the Google Scholar Blog entry announcing the addition, or the Google help page, which has further tips and instructions.
