IIT Library Links in Google Scholar

We’re pleased to now offer links to IIT library services from within Google Scholar, the popular academic search engine. When doing a search in Google Scholar, users on the IIT main campus will automatically see links like the ones below in the search results. Off-campus users can also get the links by setting up IIT Library Links in the Scholar Preferences section of Google Scholar. (Click here for instructions on setting up Library Links).

IIT Library Links in Google Scholar

If full-text access is available to a journal article in your search results through IIT, you’ll see the GetArticle@IIT link. Follow this link to the GetArticle menu, which will show you options for getting the full text of the article.

If online full-text is not available, use the More options @ IIT link to see if the journal is held in print at the library, to get the article via interlibrary loan, or to see if an abstract or table of contents is available electronically.

At the moment, IIT Library Links are available for journal articles only, not for books. To check if IIT has a book you’ve found in Google Scholar, use the IIT Library Catalog.

Disclaimer: Users should note that Google Scholar is still in “beta,” or test mode, and that not all academic publishers allow Google full access to their content. Therefore Galvin Library cannot completely guarantee the accuracy and functionality of Google Scholar Library Links, nor is it our opinion that a search in Google Scholar is a viable replacement for a search using library-provided bibliographic databases and indexes, many of which also do not allow Google Scholar to access their content. If you experience problems getting the full text of an article via the GetArticle@IIT link, use Articles by Citation form on our web site to see if full-text access is available.
