Google Scholar

Use the Google search engine to locate articles from a wide variety of academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as scholarly articles published on the "open" web. 

GS is particularly useful if you already have the title of an article and want to look it up quickly.

Searching Google Scholar through a Queen's NetID Login enables the Get It @ Queen's service (which links citations in Google Scholar to the full text of articles contained in Queen's subscriptions as well as to the library catalogue).

Publications from the ODP include a Proceedings series, consisting of initial reports, scienfitic results, technical notes, a precruise plan, and preliminary reports for each cruise.  "The Program was funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and 22 international partners (JOIDES) to conduct basic research into the history of the ocean basins and the overall nature of the crust beneath the ocean floor using the scientific drill ship JOIDES Resolution."
