Search universities for resources

A simple way to find resources published by universities or academic institutions is to use the Google search. The site parameter can be used to restrict the search to the academic domain, if such a domain is defined in the country you are interested in. Unfortunately not all countries do have an academic top level domain. Canada or Germany for example do not have such a top level domain.

Google now also indexes scanned pdf-documents

Thanks to OCR (optical character recognition) technologies Google now indexes and makes available to text searches pdf-documents, that have originally been scanned. While these documents in the past appeared to be images with their content (text) hidden in the image, Google now converts them to html text and indexes their content. These are great news for everyone searching for articles in old scanned journals.
