Google Scholar Setup

Google Scholar allows you to search for many different resources on the web, including books and articles.

Pro Tip: You can make Google Scholar link to the library content that is available free.


NOTE FOR VIDEO VIEWERS: The name of our linking has changed since I made the video.
The link is now "Mansfield University - Full Text - Full Text @ MU".


Accessing Articles: Some of the articles may be available online from the library, but you need to set up Google Scholar to know that you are associated with Mansfield University. Here's how:

  1. Go to Scholar Settings
  2. Under "Library Links" enter Mansfield University and click on search
  3. Place a check in front of Mansfield University.
  4. At the bottom of the page, click on "Save"
  5. Now, if the full text is available, there will be a link to the library.

Things not available online: If there is something you want that isn't available online, request it through ILLiad.
