Google Scholar results will link you directly to the online journal but you will likely not have access to the full-text, as you are not authenticated via NUS Libraries proxy. To access the full-text, you can either:
To set up the "Find it @NUS Libraries" link option:
1. Go to Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.com) At the top left panel, click on the menu option shown below:
2. Select Settings on the resulting screen. Click on Library Links:
3. At the "Show library access..." screen, enter NUS and click Enter. Uncheck the default box for "Open World Cat...". Click Save:
4. Now you're ready test if your settings work. Search for a topic in Google Scholar for example "Forest City Malaysia Chinese": In the search results, look for the Find it @NUS Libraries buttons on the right panel. Click on these buttons to view full texts .
1. Why does the "Find it #NUS Libraries" link appear next to some items and not others?
Google Scholar displays this link after comparing the citation to our list of electronic subscriptions. Keep in mind that Google Scholar does not know when we have the print version, nor can it match an incomplete citation. So if the item is not available for free via the web, be sure to search our catalogue or FindMore search engine to see if the NUS Libraries own that title.
1.1. Check Library Holdings via Google Scholar
In some cases, Google Scholar may fail to display the link next to articles even if we have access. To confirm if we really do have access, select the option available below each record. This allows you to "Check Library Holdings" while in Google Scholar:
1.2. Search By ISSN or By TItle
The system checks for the availability of the source title in our collection and subsequently returns the screen below. Since the required title is not available online. select By ISSN or By Title to confirm if the source title is available in print.
Both the Proxy Bookmarklet and Find it! @NUS Libraries methods can be used to access full-text from Google Scholar search results but they each have their own strengths & weaknesses.
