Setting Up Google Scholar
When do I need these instructions?
If you are working off campus, follow these steps to activate FIND IT at UW Whitewater in Google Scholar. If you are working on campus using UW-W Wi-Fi services, or using UW-W VPN services from off campus, your computer will automatically detect these settings.
Should Google Scholar be the only search tool I use?
Please Note: Google Scholar does not interlink with all UW-W ebooks and articles. We strongly encourage that you search for books, media and more using the library catalog (HALCat), or search for specific journal subscriptions using the Journal Holdings List. We also recommended that you search individual, subject-specific databases as well as Google Scholar to find the best available sources of information on your topic.
