Yale Links in Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a free tool that searches fulltext of most electronic journals (except journals published by Elsevier). It also contains records for books from the OpenWorldCat service. Yale Links and Yale Fulltext links are now available in Google Scholar for some records.

Yale Links and Yale Fulltext in Google Scholar results quickly and easily lead to material licensed or purchased by the Library.

Two options in Google Scholar will lead to Yale material.

  • Yale Fulltext. This option indicates that the Yale University Library has licensed access to this article. Follow the link to display electronic fulltext.
  • Yale Links. Follow this link to other Yale Library services, such as ordering an article through interlibrary loan.

The image below shows the two options displayed in a Google Scholar search.

Yale Links: Finding Books The fourth record is for a book entitled An Introduction. The Yale Links option leads to a menu where an option to search Orbis, the Yale Library catalog, is displayed. Following this link shows that the Yale Library owns a copy of the book.

Setting Preferences in Google Scholar To make Yale Links display in Google Scholar, you must select Yale in the Google Scholar Preferences.

  • From the Google Scholar search screen, select Scholar Preferences.
  • Search for Yale and in the Library Links section check the box next to Yale University Library.
  • Select Save Preferences.
