Linking Google Scholar to Library Holdings

It’s no secret that I love having access to the numerous online databases available from being a student at a university library. Google Scholar is another great search engine for finding journal articles. However, Google Scholar is missing the full access to articles that one can get from being part of an academic institution. That problem can be solved by linking your academic library with your Google account, enabling you to see if the article is available from your library. You can view the tutorial from SJSU King Library here: Customizing Google Scholar | San José State University Library.
