More Google Tools

I'm such a sucker for Google tools.

Joel over at Elesyium mentioned the latest beta, Google Scholar. It searches through academic research and papers. I found one study my Dad was part of, Performance of High-Speed Dental Handpieces: Subjected to Simulated Clinical Use and Sterilization .

Maybe that's not exciting online reading, but still. . . What a neat new tool.

Neat! The search tools and methods I learned in library school sometimes seem like they are becoming more and more irrelevent. But if you want to compare dull reading allow me to mention the articles I found that my dad was wrote or was part of:

Metal/silicon Interface Analysis Using Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy

Ion implantation of solar cell junctions without mass analysis

Diagnostic test for ion implantation dosimetry

Temperature effects in atomic mixing of metal-silicon multilayers measured by SIMS

If you like that, you also might like Google CrossRefSearch (http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/crossref.html), which is full-text search of journal articles across a significant number of publishers. If you're at a research institution, you will typically be able to access full text of journal articles directly from the search; if you're not, at least you can get at journals you have aa subscription to, and those that have free content.

Wow, Jordana--those sound. . . fun? When my Dad I working on his master's I memorized the title of the research he was doing. Can't remeber it now, but it was something like, "The Effects of Sodiom Ions. . ." and anyway, the titles sounded similar to the ones you posted! My Dad is in dental research--what about yours?

Thanks, David. I did several searches yesterday and was disappointed when most would only provide the abstracts. I'm not in the position to pay $15 bucks a pop for recreational research reading. But when we're stateside again. . .
