Google Scholar is Google’s search engine for journal articles and books. If you are on campus “available online from UWS” links will appear automatically in your search results; if you are off campus you will need to make a small change to Google’s settings to get these links.
Getting full text at home
You can get UWS full text links off campus by going to http://scholar.google.com/ scholar_setprefs?instq=university+west+scotland , ticking the options for University of the West of Scotland in the “Library Links” section, and then choosing to “Save Preferences”.
This will add the “available online from UWS” links to Google Scholar, but you will still need to log in with Athens to read many of these articles.
This feature changed recently – if you had set this up in the past and your UWS links have disappeared, please follow the above instructions to restore the links.
More help on using Google Scholar, including configuring Google Scholar to work with EndNote, is available on the library website.
