How to add Find it@ACU to Google Scholar
Many of you may already be using Google Scholar as it provides a simple, convenient way to search across a broad range of scholarly literature.
You might have noticed that on campus we have set up Google Scholar to link to full text electronic material our library has access to.
Did you know that it is also possible to do this from home by setting your Google Scholar Preferences? This will save you time and allow you to search across many resources at once from off-campus.
From the Google Scholar homepage (www.scholar.google.com)
- Go to Settings (top right of the screen)
- On the left of the screen select Library Links
- In the search box type “Australian Catholic University”, then click ‘Find Library’
- The ACU Library will appear in the Library list. Tick the check box next to the "Australian Catholic University - Find it@ACU"
- Click Save
Now when you search Google Scholar your results list will include Find it@ACUlinks to connect you to the full text articles for which we can provide access.
