Google Scholar settings allows you to connect to Library Search, giving you direct access to our online resources when you are off campus.

To set this up:

  1. Before you start, you will need a Google account.
  2. Go to Google Scholar settings page.
  3. In the 'Library Links' section enter 'Newcastle University' in the search box and click on the blue search icon.
  4. When the results appear below the search box check the box next to the result ‘Newcastle University - Find @ Newcastle’ (the other University of Newcastle is in Australia!).
  5. Then click on the ‘Save’ button (at the bottom of the page).

Now when you search Google Scholar you will sometimes see, in the links to the right, a ‘Find @ Newcastle’ link. When you click on this link you will be able to access the full text of an article via Library Search, if the Library has a subscription to it.
