In Google Scholar, add Kalamazoo College Library in the "Library Links" settings. Once you set and save your "Library Links" setting, you will be able to link to K's library resources retrieved in Google Scholar.
1. Click on the three bars at the upper left to open the options menu on Google Scholar.
2. Open Settings
3. Click on Library links:
4. Type "Kalamazoo College" into the search box and click the search icon.
5. Check all of the Kalamazoo College & WorldCat boxes. Then click Save.
6. Now you will be able to link to K Library resources. In the search results, look for the Kalamazoo College full-text links. (Note: Sometimes the link is labeled with the database name and not the library name - as long as a link appears on the right side of the page, you should have full-text access).
7. If you are off campus and trying to access library articles, you need to enter your K College username and password.
1. Why does the "Get it @ K College" link appear next to some articles and not others?
Google Scholar displays this link after comparing the citation to the Library's list of electronic subscriptions. Keep in mind that Google Scholar does not know when our library has the print version, nor can it match an incomplete citation. If the article is not available for free on the web, be sure to search Library OneSearch to see if K Library has access to the article.
2. Is everything in Google Scholar free?
No. Many Google Scholar citations link to the journal publishers' web sites, and most charge a fee for access. However, K Library subscribes to many the same or similar resources, and they can be accessed from Library OneSearch.
4. How comprehensive is Google Scholar?
Google Scholar searches open access materials as well as journals from many publishers. However, Google Scholar searches only a fraction of the published scholarly literature. Use Library OneSearch and library databases to search for more full-text sources accessible without a fee.
5. How do I search by author, limit to certain publications, or within a date range in Google Scholar?
Use Advanced Search (found in the hamburger menu) which allows for author, publication title, and date range searching.
