You can set up Google Scholar to check if articles you find are also in a Seneca Libraries Database. This feature of Google Scholar is called Library Links.

How do I set up Google Scholar with Library Links?

  1. Visit Google Scholar.
  2. Open Scholar's Settings menu (click the three lines, then click either Settings or the gear icon).
          Arrow pointing at the gear icon in the Google Scholar's settings menu.
     
  3. Click Library Links.
  4. Type Seneca Libraries into the search box and press enter.

    Arrow pointing from the library links tab to the box where you enter the words Seneca Libraries.
  5. Press Save when a checkbox called Seneca Libraries - View it: Seneca Libraries appears. You'll now have Library Links activated in Google Scholar in whatever browser you chose.
     

How do I use Library Links in Google Scholar?

With Google Scholar set up for Library Links, when you search for articles you will see a View It: Seneca Libraries option to the right of some titles. Clicking this will open Seneca Libraries catalogue where you can see whether or not we have access to an article.

Not every article will be available, but it gives you another easy way to search our catalogue for useful resources.
