How do I use Google Scholar to search the Library eResources?

If you use Google Scholar to find resources for your studies and research, you can also set it up so that it will show if the articles in the results are available to you as a Roehampton user. In order to do this, you can follow the below steps or view our video tutorial on using Google Scholar.

  1. Open the left sidebar and select "Settings". 
  2. Pick "Library links" and search for Roehampton.
  3. Tick "University of Roehampton - FullText@Roehampton".

You are now set up. When you perform a search via Google Scholar, you will be able to see if you have access to the results as a Roehampton student or member of staff: if you do, a "FullText@Roehampton" link will appear to the right of the resource. 

Please note that not all available eResources will be picked up by Google Scholar searches, as the integration is platform specific (the service is only integrated with EBSCO-provided resources). For full results, always use the "Search Everything" tab on UR Library Search. For further information, please also see our FAQ "Why is there a message saying I have to pay for a journal article?".
