Librarian X With great power comes great bibliography.

Google Scholar citation tracker

Last summer, Google introduced Google Scholar Citations. It's a simple tool designed to let scholarly authors track works that cite their publications. I don't remember seeing a lot of talk about it, but it's so useful I thought it was worth a blog post.

To set it up, go to Google Scholar and click the My Citations link below the search box. It's not perfect, since it only tracks citations that appear in Scholar, but it's easy and free. I've discovered a few citations this way that I'd have missed otherwise.

  1. Obviously I pursued the wrong degree and should have become a librarian because you always find the most useful things!

  2. It’s never too late. I work with several librarians with PhDs!
