Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.
You can find some open access articles to download through Google Scholar and others required payment. A set-up can be made by linking Google Scholar to Khalifa University of Science & Technology Library Catalog, which allows you to check if the library has the full-text of a certain article you found in Google Scholar.
Google Scholar Citations provide a simple way for authors to keep track of citations to their articles. You can check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics.
