Google Scholar Library Links allows you to access the library’s resources while searching Google Scholar. These links appear to the right of the item in Google Scholar and say “View It @ Georgia Southern.” When you click on one of these links, you will be given options to access the resource through the library.

These links will automatically appear any time you search Google Scholar on-campus. However, for these links to appear off-campus, you will need to configure your personal Library Links settings in Google Scholar. 

To configure Library Links to work off-campus, see below.
