Just read an article at The New York Times about a new Google search:
From the Times article:
Google Scholar, which was scheduled to go online Wednesday evening at scholar.google.com, is a result of the company’s collaboration with a number of scientific and academic publishers and is intended as a first stop for researchers looking for scholarly literature like peer-reviewed papers, books, abstracts and technical reports.
I haven’t had a chance to play with this new tool yet, but it looks like yet another interesting “take” on searching from Google.
