The Nursing Research Guide under the "Getting Started" tab in the box "Google Scholar (Search and Export Citation)" provides the following directions.
Google Scholar (www.scholar.google.com) allows you to search for relevant scholarly information across many disciplines and sources.
If you search Google Scholar on-campus, you will be automatically linked to full-text articles in the Library databases. From off-campus, you must link to Iona University Libraries Databases from Google Scholar:
Instructions for linking to Iona University Libraries Databases from Google Scholar
- Go to Settings (three bars on the top left of the page)
- Click on Library Links
- Type in Iona University
How do Google Scholar Library Links work?
When you search Google Scholar, you'll see Find full-text @ Iona links in the results. Sometimes these links will appear to the right of the result, and other times the links will be hidden at the bottom of the result -- to unhide (or expand), click the double arrows.
Iona Library Links in Google Scholar aren't foolproof! Please keep in mind the following:
You still need to log in (authenticate) with your Iona user id and password after clicking Find full-text @ Iona. Full text is not guaranteed. Iona full-text holdings are constantly being updated, and sometimes Google's inventory of our catalog may not be in sync. If an article isn't available in full-text, please request it via ILL.
To configure exporting citations from Google Scholar to RefWorks
- Go to Settings (three bars on the top left of the page).
- Locate the Bibliography Manager
- Select RefWorks from the drop-down menu next to Show links to import citations into.
- Click on Save.
- When searching, click on Import into RefWorks underneath each article you want to import.
