Linking the TiU library to Google Scholar

The best method to use Google Scholar is to connect it to our own library's resources. Using the library alongside Google Scholar will ensure you don’t miss any relevant (scholarly) literature for your writing assignments.

On campus

When you're on campus using a study place or a mobile device connected to the WiFi network Eduroam, your Google Scholar searches will automatically include TiUfinder links. 

Off campus

To get access to the library's online resources from off campus you have to put in a little more effort:

1.  Use the EZproxy link in the database list

The easiest way to enable the connection with TiU content is to use the EZ-proxy link to Google Scholar included in the library's database list. The EZproxy link will already include the necessary settings and will ensure off-campus access to full-text articles (TiU credentials required).

2. Set up a Google Scholar account

Alternatively, set up Google Scholar for an individual account by following these steps:

  • Go to http://scholar.google.com;
  • Expand the menu icon on the top left corner and click 'Settings' from the menu;
  • Click on 'Library Links' from the navigation bar along the side of the page;
  • Search 'Tilburg University' in the Library Links then click on the Search button;
  • Check the box in the front of 'Tillburg University - Fulltext via TiUfinder';
  • Then click Save in the lower right corner.

Once these settings are enabled, Google Scholar will indicate which articles are available via our library subscriptions and provide a 'TiUfinder' link to access them:

You will often, but not always, find full text with the TiUfinder. Some publishers don't allow users to access their journals through Google Scholar.
