Search tools

If you don't have the habit of starting your search on the library website, the following tools will help make access to library resources (including subscribed journals and or checking of availability of books in our library) easier. You can use one or all together.

Proxy Bookmarklet  - Use this when you are on a site asking you to pay for access

Google Scholar + NUS Libraries  - Use this with Google Scholar to gain access to full text with one click


To go even further and find full text via Google Scholar on any page, install the Lazy Scholar Chrome Addon.

Search Plugin - Use this to search for library resources from any page in your browser 

Libx browser plugin (beta) - the ultimate library search tool,  combines the functions of the proxy bookmarklet, browser plugins and more - making access to library resources easy without visiting the library homepage.

FindMore bookmarklet -  Go from Wikipedia or any other webpage to related articles in our library collection using FindMore@NUSL Search
