Google Scholar and Library Resources

Google Scholar has the ability to link to your Library resources here at the Health Sciences Library. Setting up Library Links means Google Scholar will link to full text Library resources if we have access to it. These links will appear on the right side of your screen, and it will cut down on your search time for full-text as a UTHSC affiliate. Alumni and non-affiliates will not have this feature. For more information on how you can research as an alumni or non-affiliate, please check out our Alumni Information and Links Guide.

How to set up Library Links in Google Scholar:

  1. Go to Google Scholar's homepage
  2. Open the menu on the left hand side of the screen and select "Settings"
  3. Select "Library Links" on the left hand side of the screen
  4. Search for University of Tennessee Health Science Center
  5. Check our institution, then hit Save
  6. Now, when you search for things in Google Scholar, @UTHSC Library will appear on the right hand side of your screen if we have full-text access to the resource.

NOTE: This is already set up on all campus computers, so this is not something you will have to do if you use a computer on campus.

 

Web of Science Integration

Google Scholar and Web of Science have partnered to provide links to each other's resources. When you access Web of Science from our Library's homepage, your searches will include a link to look up full text in Google Scholar. When you search in Google Scholar and link to our Library, Web of Science full text links will appear below each search result. Clicking on this link will take you to the Web of Science Core Collection, and the results you see there will be articles that have cited the resource you are looking at.
