Did you know that you can setup Google Scholar to include resources available through Eckerd Library? Google Scholar provides a way to search for scholarly articles and provides links to open access versions available around the web. Many people use it as an alternative or supplement to using the Library's OneSearch platform. You can also see what resources are available through Eckerd but need to take a few extra steps to get connected, especially if you are connecting from off-campus.


How to add Eckerd Library holdings to Google Scholar

1) First, go to Google Scholar using the following link. This is important, as the link includes our proxy prefix which allows you to connect to our resources from off-campus. When using the link, you may be asked to login using your Eckerd gmail account, unless you are already logged in.


2) Click the Menu icon and click settings, then click Library Links within the Settings menu:

3) Within the Library links page, confirm that you see Eckerd College Library - Full Text @ Eckerd listed. If not, search for it and check the box to include it in your Google Scholar settings and click Save. You may need to enable Cookies.

4) To confirm this is working, search for an article in Google Scholar and note if links to Eckerd College Library - Full Text @ Eckerd appear for some results. If so, this means that Eckerd has access to this and you can click the link to view it on our site.
