Linking Google Scholar to DiPietro Library

Many articles that may turn up in your Google Scholar search are behind a paywall. But linking Google Scholar to DiPietro Library will alert you to the availability of search results in the library (thereby saving you time and money!). 

1. First, head to scholar.google.com. Click the three horizontal bars in the upper left hand corner, and select "Settings" at the bottom of the menu.

2. On the menu on the Settings page, select "Library Links."

3. In the search bar on the following page, search for "Franklin Pierce University." You should receive a result for "Franklin Pierce University -- Full-text @ FPU Library." Check the box next to this listing, then click "Save."

4. Now when you do a search in Google Scholar, results that are available in full text through DiPietro Library will include a link to the right of the article's title.
