Google Scholar Tips
If you are using Google Scholar (GS) - particularly if you are using it from off campus - you'll want to connect it with Hunter Library's resources. That means that when you search, GS will include full text options from Hunter library for you. Once you get that set up, here's what it looks like:
So how do you set this up? Follow these steps!
- Go to Google Scholar and look for the three vertical lines in the top left corner.
- This opens an options menu in Google Scholar.
- Select "Settings" (it's the one with the gear icon).
- Look for "Library links" in the list of options in the top left corner.
- Type in Western Carolina University to search for Hunter Library.
- Check the box next to Western Carolina University - FullText@WesternCarolinaU.
- Click the Save button.
And that's it, you will now be linked to many of the library's holdings in Google Scholar. You can then click on "FullText@WesternCarolinaU" when it appears next to a citation and be taken to WCU's access to the content. If you are off campus, you will be asked to login.
