ICYMI: You can now add the Google Scholar button to your Firefox or Chrome toolbar. If you are a frequent user of Google Scholar, you might enjoy this new add-on that integrates with your browser to easily search for articles referenced in your online reading (among other things).
Lookup scholarly articles as you browse the web.
This extension adds a browser button for easy access to Google Scholar from any web page. Click the Scholar button to:
– Find full text on the web or in your university library. Select the title of the paper on the page you’re reading, and click the Scholar button to find it.
– Transfer your query from web search to Scholar. Press the Scholar button to see top three results; click “full screen” in the lower left of the popup to see them all.
– Format references in widely used citation styles. Press the quote button in the popup to see a formatted reference and copy it into the paper you’re writing.
Library links work best when you’re on campus. To configure them for off-campus use, visit Google Scholar Settings at https://scholar.google.com/scholar_settings or simply click on the Settings icon from the new Google Scholar search in your toolbar, and click on “Library Links” to add/save university affiliations (ex. search for University of North Carolina at Charlotte and UNCC). Otherwise, you might be asked to pay for access to library materials that are included in library subscriptions.
