Abstract: A retrieval test focused on searching 500 interdisciplinary journal articles in both Google Scholar and the implementation of the EBSCO discovery service at the University Library of Cologne. The objective was to find out if the established and free scientific search engine Google scholar, which can be seen as an example for Web Discovery Services, is more than an alternative to these new services. The results showed that Google Scholar is inferior in all aspects (proof and availability of full text, availability of German articles, temporal coverage) to a service liable to pay costs. It is however highlighted that Google scholar is adequate for a first access into a scientific research because of its free access and the overall satisfying results.
