Linking to Full-Text Resources in Google Scholar

You can now access full-text materials licensed by the OWU Libraries via Google Scholar.  If you are on campus, links to full-text will automatically appear.  If you are off campus, you can set your preferences so that links to our full-text materials display automatically. You may also want to turn on OLINKs, OhioLINK’s connection to full-text resources.

Watch this brief video to find out how to set your preferences to link to OWU and OhioLINK full-text when you are off campus:

You will still be prompted to authenticate for access to library materials.
