Google Scholar is beloved by many a researcher for its clean lines and easy-to-use filters. Previously, though, it did have one inconvenience:
Here we see three results for a “sepsis treatment” search. If we wanted to read article #2, we’d be set — a PDF is available from researchgate.net. But what about articles #1 and #3? We don’t know if we can access them. We’d have to copy-and-paste the article titles into our library’s databases and hope for the best.
As of last week, this situation has changed. Now the results look like this:
With the “Full Text @ Your Library” link, we can now access all three articles straight from the search page. Just log in with your Oakwood ID and password, and you should be good to go.
If you can’t see any “Full Text @ Your Library” links, try enabling them this way.
First, go to scholar.google.com, and click on “Settings.”
Then click on “Library links.”
Type “Oakwood University” into the search box, and select it when it comes up.
After clicking “Save,” you should be able to view “Full Text @ Your Library” links.
As always, feel free to let us know in the comments if you’re unable to make this work.
