Q. How do I access articles I find through Google Scholar?

Link to articles to which the Libraries pay to access on your Google Scholar search results screen by following these steps in Google Scholar:

http://scholar.google.com/   (Google Scholar home)

1) At the top, click Settings (gear icon)

2) On the left, click Library Links

3) In the search box, type “University of Arkansas”

4) Check the box for “University of Arkansas Libraries – Find it! At UofA”

5) Click “Save”

Now, when you search Google Scholar, you’ll start seeing some links to “Find it! At UofA” in the right-hand column for certain articles. Click on the link to go to the Find it! Page, which provides links to full text, where available. Click on one of the “full text available online” links and (if you’re off-network) login with your UARK username and password to access the full text.

If you don’t see any links to the full text, despair not! Further down on the Find it! Page you’ll find a section on how to “Request a Copy” through interlibrary loan (ILL), which is usually very fast for electronic items.
