Google Scholar for LTU Library

On Campus:
  • Google Scholar recognizes you as a Lawrence Tech affiliate
  • Look for the "Find it @ Lawrence Tech" link (usually on the right of the results list) to lead to full text content
Off Campus:
  • In your browser, set preferences in Scholar so LTU Library links will show in results (see below)
  • If full-text doesn't show directly, use the Find it @... to link to our holdings
  • You will be prompted  login (use Canvas/computer credentials) to access full text
  • If you are using the Global Protect VPN, you must log out of it while using databases off-campus  ( they are not compatible)
"How to path":
  • Go to Scholar "Settings" icon (three lines upper left)
  • Choose "Settings"
  • Select Library Links in left menu
  • Type Lawrence Technological University in the search box
  • Checkmark the boxes for our library (leave "Open WorldCat" checkmarked too)
  • Click the Save button at the bottom of the page to save your preferences

Now Google Scholar results should be tagged if there is access though the LTU Library.
