Google vs. Library Catalog

I typed the same phrase: Women's rights and Fashion, into both google and the library catalog. The results from each of these search engines were quite different from eachother. 

The google search gave me shorter, more modern, less scientific articles. The sources are from more pop-culture sites  like However, there are also more scholarly articles like from the american history website. 

The library catalog allowed me to look at both books and articles. The articles found on the library site have more credibility and depth opposed to what is found on a google search. What is shown below is a list of books that the library has related to the topic that I searched for.
