Google Scholar is a useful tool for finding articles online, and it is available for anyone to use. However, UNL students, faculty, and staff can get the most use out of Google Scholar by logging in through UNL Libraries.

On campus: Accessing Google Scholar on campus should automatically provide you access to UNL's resources.

Off campus:

  • Log into My Library Account through the UNL Libraries home page.
  • Go to Google Scholar.
  • Click "Settings," (little gear icon), then click "Library links."
  • Search "university of nebraska" and from the search results, check the boxes next to "University of Nebraska Lincoln - Find this for me" and "Open WorldCat - Library Search" to add them to your list of libraries. 

Now, when searching for articles, you should see "Find this for me" links showing up alongside the article results. This works the same as the "Find this for me" links in Academic Search Premier or any of our other databases.

Here is an example of what the Library Link will look like in Google Scholar.

If you have trouble accessing articles through Google Scholar, please contact a librarian and we will help you find what you need!
