What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar is Google’s search engine for scholarly works. Some of these will be available as City online resources, but many will be citation-only. You can make your Google Scholar search more effective by connecting Google Scholar to your University account.

Change your Google Scholar settings

  1. Go to Google Scholar and select the Menu bar.
  2. Select Settings then Library links.
    The Google Scholar settings, library links page. Details in following steps.
  3. Enter City, University of London into the search box and select Search.
  4. Tick the check box to the left of City, University of London- is it @ City Library? and Save.

Now, when Google Scholar returns your search results, you should see the link is it @ CityLibrary on the right-hand margin whenever we have a valid subscription to access the article.
