Using Google Scholar away from Loyola

If you're not on Loyola's campus, you will change Scholar settings: 

  1. Go to Google Scholar
  2. Select Settings
  3. Select Library Links
  4. Enter Loyola New Orleans and click Search
  5. Check the box to the left of Loyola University - Get it @ Loyola
  6. Select Save

Once you've done this, you will be able to locate our journals.  If you have a Gmail, Drive or other Google account, sign in first.  Once you do, your settings will be saved from one session to the next.  Otherwise, you will have to go through the settings process each time.  

Google Scholar Citation Searching

Google Scholar can find articles that have cited articles you already know about.  This is one way to take an older article and bring its content up to date.  Click the "Google Scholar" taqb above to find out how to do this.
