Finding an Article with Google Scholar
- Go to Twin Cities Library's Google Scholar.
- Type your article's title in quotation marks (e.g., "Changing the concept and measure of service quality in academic libraries") and select the search icon.
- Look for your article title in the results list.
- If you cannot find your article in the results list, verify that your search terms are correct.
- If you found your article in the results list, select the Full Text Options - SMU link to the right (see example) or the More link below the article title.
- A new menu will appear that contains one of two options for getting full text:
- You'll see the heading Get a copy now and a list of database links (e.g., ScienceDirect). Select a database, and you will be taken to your article.
- You'll see the heading Request a copy, which indicates that SMU does not own the article. Select the link Request this article from another library (avg. 1-4 business days) and complete the form to request the article through Interlibrary Loan. Your article will be emailed to your Saint Mary's Gmail account.
By customizing the settings for Twin Cities Library's Google Scholar in your computer's browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari), you can access the Full Text Options - SMU link without going to the Twin Cities Library's website.
