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.
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.
To get access to the library's online resources from off campus you have to put in a little more effort:
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).
Alternatively, set up Google Scholar for an individual account by following these steps:
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.
