If you’re using Google Scholar from off-campus you’ll need to change some settings to ensure Google Scholar includes links to material held in the University of Waterloo Library’s collection in your search results. To set-up your off-campus Google Scholar settings:

1. go to Google Scholar

2. select "settings" in the top menu (under "more" if you are using smaller screen device)

Choosing setting option in Google Scholar

 

3. Select "Library links" form the left hand menu.
