Still in beta, and very interesting, especially to those joeheads whose noggins are especially egg-shaped - yeah, EM and GRO and the rest, I'm talkin' about you.
"Google Scholar enables you to search specifically for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts, and technical reports from a wide variety of academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as scholarly articles available across the web."
Check it out and tell me Google isn't still the cat's pajamas, head and shoulders above Microsoft, Yahoo, and all the other search wanna-be's.
Like the homepage says:
"Stand on the shoulders of giants"

Google has another superb idea here. The problem is, most of these databases that archive academic literature require subscriptions, which in turn require log-in names and passwords. Google's search blocked me from seeing the full text versions of articles I easily could have accessed through my university's on-line database. Hopefully Google can figure out a way to incorporate "on the fly" log-ins - then this tool would be truly useful to students and academics. It's a much, much faster search than the on-line database I'm used to.
