Google Scholar Preferences

Google Scholar is an easy way to do interdisciplinary research, and with some settings changes can become even more useful.  You need a Google account to use some of these features.  To make Google display links to full text of articles that Berkeley subscribes to: Open Scholar and click on thethree parallel lines (hamburger icon) in the upper corner, then click Settings, then click Library Links. Once in Library Links, enter the word Berkeley and click search (if you are connected to the internet via the campus, Google Scholar will have the correct boxes selected for you).  In the list of options that appears, check the boxes for

  • Open WorldCat - Library Search
  • University of California Berkeley - Get it at UC
  • University of California Berkeley - ProQuest FullText 

If you see UC e-links, ignore this as it will go away by Nov 2021.  Click save and then you can start searching.
