Google Scholar @ GGU!

The University Library is pleased to announce that Google Scholar now has the ability to link directly to many of the articles that are available in the University Library's online databases.

When you find a citation in Google Scholar for an article that is available in a University Library database, simply click the link labeled "Read Full-Text @ GGU" (see sample below) next to the citation title. If you are using a computer on the main campus, you will be sent directly to the article. If you are using an off-campus computer, you must first configure Google Scholar to recognize you as a member of GGU:
  1. Go to
  2. Click the "Scholar Preferences" link
  3. Type Golden Gate University in the "Library Links" box and click the Find Library button.
  4. Select the item labeled "Golden Gate University Library - Read Full-Text @ GGU".
  5. Click the Save Preferences button at the bottom of the screen.
Once you have configured your off-campus computer so that Google Scholar recognizes you as a member of GGU, you only need enter your GGU ID number and last name when accessing articles via Google Scholar.

If you have any questions or would like a demonstration of how Google Scholar can help you locate articles online at GGU, please contact the University Library and make an appointment with a reference librarian.
