Find Library Resources: Search Tools & Tips - Set These up in Your Device!

The guide to help you search for items within NUS Libraries

Set up Find it! @NUS Libraries to locate full text in Google Scholar search results

Google Scholar results will link you directly to the required online journal article or book chapter but you would likely not have access to the full-text, particularly if the source title is subscribed by the Library. This is because you are not authenticated via NUS Libraries' proxy. To access the full-text, set up your Google Scholar settings to link it to the NUS Libraries' collection.

cautionGoogle Scholar includes books and book chapters as well as articles.  The Find It! button won't work for document types that are only available in print (not online).

What does ProxyBookmarklet do?

The proxy bookmarklet automatically inserts the NUS Libraries proxy stem (libproxy1.nus.edu.sg) into the URL of an article/e-book. Once you have successfully installed the bookmarklet in your browser, simply click on it when you are on the publisher's page that requires you to pay or login to view full text. The system checks if the required title is within the Library's subscription. If yes, the page reloads and subsequently provides you with the full text options.
