Ask Marian: Connecting Google Scholar To Webster University Library

Dear Marian,
I’ve been using Google Scholar to find articles for my research assignments. Often, only a preview of an article is available. How can I know if these articles are available through the library without checking each article individually?

Dear Grateful Googler,
What an excellent question! There is an easy way to connect Google Scholar to Webster University Library. This will allow you to see which of your Google Scholar search results are available in Full-text through the library. When searching Google Scholar, simply click the Library Links option in your Google Scholar settings, and search for Webster University Library. Then check the box that says Webster University Library- Full-Text @ Webster.

From then on, when you are logged into your Google account, you will be able to see which of your results are available in full text from the library.
Don’t forget that even if an article¬†does not have full-text availability, you may still request it using ILLIAD!
Informationally Yours,
Marian the Librarian
