On Google Scholar

2.01.2005

"a Google Scholar search turned up references to..."

An article from the Berkeley Daily Planet is a fairly good example of something I've seen about 5 times in the past two weeks. Google Scholar is becoming a part of the lexicon of search.

Suppose we use the folks at livejournal as an interesting cross section of internet denizens, many of whom are currently returning to school. There are about 66 mentions of Scholar thus far. Assuming librarians and faculty alike are showing this new tool to students, how many mentions do you suppose will be there a month from now?
