Google Scholar

Learn how to configure Google Scholar to link to St. John Fisher College Lavery Library's databases and how to effectively use this search engine.

Adding Get It @ Fisher links

You can set up Google Scholar to display "Get It @ Fisher" links to your search results. Having the "Get It @ Fisher" links in Google Scholar allows you to access the full text of sources through the Library subscriptions or request sources through Interlibrary Loan.

When you select a "Get It @ Fisher" link, you are searching across all of the Library's collections for full-text access. If full-text access for the source is not available, you can request a copy of the article through our Interlibrary Loan service.

When you are working on campus the "Get it @ Fisher" link will automatically display for items in your Google Scholar search results, but when you are working off campus you will need to set up Get it @ Fisher with Google Scholar in order to see these links.
