Google turned 18 years but are you aware of the other family members

Google celebrates its 18th birthday this year and we congratulate 🙂

However, Google is not only the world famous search engine.  We’d like you to meet some other members of the family.

 

Google Scholar – look for scientific information

Google Books – full text books and journals you get to read (but only if their copyright allows it)

Google Maps – find maps, routes and explore Street View

Google Earth – much to see for a curious mind on and beyond our beloved Earth. Just get the plug-in or the app and explore!

 

Of course there are other Google products, too. Try for example Google Translator or install Google’s browser Chrome.

 

We’d also like to point out that there’s more than meets the eye within these services.  Try for example the advanced search feature in Google or Google Scholar and find out yourself!

 

HAMK Library is a very good friend of Google’s.  You’ll notice this when searching with Google Scholar within HAMK network; we offer you linking services from Google Scholar to HAMK resources.  Go ahead and try it yourself!  Search first in Google Scholar and then in Finna.  Or the other way around. Here’s a guide for you for HAMK e-collections and Google Scholar.
