Brooks Library Research Guides: Google Scholar

« Back To Guides Selection


Google Scholar

Did you know that you can link directly from Google Scholar to the fulltext content available in various library databases?
 

If you search Google Scholar from any computer on campus, you will see either a "Resources @ CWU Library" link at the bottom of the citation, or a "Full-Text @ CWU Library" option to the right of the title.
 

In addition, you can set your browser to use this great functionality on any computer you use at home, work, or wherever.
 

To set this up for off-campus access:

  1. Click the "Settings" option in the upper right corner of the Google Scholar homepage.
  2. Then click the option, "Library Links" link on the left side of the Google Scholar Settings Page.
  3. Enter CWU in the box in the middle of the screen.
  4. Check the "Central Washington University - Full-Text @ CWU Library" and "Open WorldCat - Library Search" checkboxes (this provides better linking for books) and click the Save button.

 
Here are some examples of what this looks like:
