Indexing Repository Content in Google Scholar
How does Google Scholar connect researchers with information?
Hint: It’s not just about robots and algorithms; it's really about people and words. Google has created a powerful academic discovery tool by cultivating partnerships with the people who use it: the students, faculty, researchers, and writers who are looking for scholarly resources, and the publishers, librarians, and institutional repository administrators who provide them.
In this webinar, Darcy Dapra, Partner Manager at Google Scholar, talks about how you can put Google to work for your repository, increase visibility for your scholarly research, and help you connect scholars with the resources they’re looking for.
On the agenda:
- How indexing in Google Scholar works
- What types of content are included
- What you can do to improve your content’s visibility in search
Darcy also discusses best practices for collecting metadata, explores some use cases, and responds to your questions. This is a great opportunity to hear firsthand from one of the people who makes Google Scholar work for the academic community.
