Tips for using Google Scholar

scholar_logo_lg_2011

It is possible to link from Google Scholar right to the full text of the article (if we subscribe).

Follow the steps below and start googling!

1) Click on the link at the top right of the page called Scholar Preferences.

2) In the section called Library Links, type Columbia in the box and click on Find Library. This brings up an option, Columbia University in the City of New York – e-Link @ Columbia, which if you check it, will provide you with links to the full text of the articles that you find in Google Scholar, if Columbia provides you access to the full text of those journals.

3) Click on Save Preferences.
