Searching with Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a great resource for searching what's out in the world as well as Alliant's databases. Watch the tutorial and then try this sample search:

leader AND implicit AND follower AND relationship

Why did I put the ANDs between my search terms, you ask? Google recognizes what's called Boolean searching connectors (AND, OR, NOT). In order for Google to recognize the search, however, you need to put the connectors in, in all caps.
