Make Google Scholar Link to Pace Full Text?
Access to Full-Text Articles via Google Scholar
Google Scholar provides the ability to search a selection of the scholarly literature available on the World Wide Web. On the Google Scholar web site, they state: “you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations” (http://scholar.google.com/scholar/about.html).
Many of the results links in Google Scholar will bring you to immediately available full-text documents. For many other documents, content is only available via a subscription service and you may be asked for a username and password, or a credit card number.
You can configure Google Scholar to show you links for those documents to which the Pace Library currently provides full-text access via one or more of our subscription databases. Then, when attempting to access one of these documents, you will be granted access after entering your MyPace Portal username and password.
Go to Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.com/), and select the “Scholar Preferences” link next to the Search box.
On the “Scholar Preferences” page, go to the Library Links area:
In the search box, type “Pace University” and then add that to the list of libraries, it will look like this after you add Pace University Library to your list:
In the Results Window area, click inside the box to select this option.
By selecting this option, when you are off campus you will only have to authenticate once by providing your MyPace Portal username and password. Otherwise, you will have to re-open another browser and go back to Google scholar and go through the authentication process again.
Now you can run a search in Google Scholar using your search terms, for example:
In the list of results, there are usually journal articles listed as well as books; in the journal article citations look for: “Full-Text @ Pace U.”:
When clicked, the “Full-Text @ Pace U.” link launches a “Search for Article” window that indicates when we have access to a publication. Follow the links to the articles or journals in the “Search for Article” box (as seen below). Click on Article to take you directly to the full-text article.
If you are off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your MyPace portal username and password, and then the article will be displayed, like so:
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a librarian!
