Google ScholarSearch tool that focuses on academic/scholarly materials available on the web. An excellent supplementary tool to use along with the established databases listed on this page.
To connect Google Scholar results to the library's full-text articles:
1. In Google Scholar click the three horizontal bars in the corner to view the menu
2. Select ‘Settings’
3. Select ‘Library Links’ and search for: stirling
4. Tick the box next to ‘Stirling University Library - University of Stirling Links’
5. Click Save.
‘Stir Univ’ links will now appear next to articles in your search results. Click on the links to check if we have the full-text of the article in our collection. If we don’t have full-text use the options to request the article.
Then go back to Settings, this time choose ‘Account’ (under ‘Library links’), then tick the box that says ‘Signed-in off-campus access links’ – this will make accessing full-text articles from off-campus easier
