Google scholar – Find It via UML

Google scholar is a useful resource for finding books and articles. On campus PCs are configured so that it provides Find It via UML links. Off campus you can configure Google scholar to include these links.

The Find It via UML links do not give you direct access to online articles. You still need to authenticate yourself as a member of the University to access the full text.

For those interested in the details, adding the library preference to Google scholar means that it checks the library’s “link resolver” for items in the search results and adds a link where appropriate.
