Google Scholar

Using Google Scholar search to find full text


Google Scholar Search

Look for the "Find Fulltext at GC" link next to each result. Use that link to get the full text via the library's resources.

Tip:  You can link your Google account to the GC, so the “Find Fulltext at GC” links will always appear – even if you don’t start your search from this page. Go to our customized settings screen, check all boxes for Mina Rees Library and click Save. If you’re logged into a Google account, it will remember that setting from now on.
