Using Google Scholar at GGU

The University Library is currently testing out a way to access articles online via Google Scholar. If you would like to participate, here's how:
  1. Go to http://scholar.google.com
  2. Click the "Scholar Preferences" link to the right of the search field
  3. In the Library Links field, type: Golden Gate University
  4. Click the Find Library button
  5. Place a checkmark next to "Golden Gate University Library - Full-Text @ My Library"
  6. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save Preferences" button
Whenever an article found in Google Scholar is available in one of the University Library's full-text databases, you can click the "Full-Text @ My Library" link to access it.

Note: GGU patrons accessing Google Scholar from a a computer on the main SF campus do not need to configure anything, as it is automatically setup for you.
