Customize Google Scholar

Have you customized Google Scholar to recognize Willamette-owned materials? As a Willamette affiliate, you can set up Google Scholar so that it displays the Get it @ WU links in the results page.
If you are using Google Scholar on on campus, it will recognize that you’re at Willamette and automatically provide the Get it @ WU links. If you are working off campus, set up your Google Scholar preferences page by typing in “Willamette University” in the Library Links box and click on the Find Library button. Select the item and save your preferences.
Keep in mind that in order to access articles, you need to be a current student, faculty or staff member. Also, Google Scholar often links to commercial publisher websites which ask you to pay for access. DO NOT PAY FOR ARTICLES! Look for the Get it @ WU link. If we do not have the article available, you can still request it at no cost by using our Interlibrary Loan services or going through your local public library (for alumni & community borrowers).
