Using Google Scholar

📍 Get UWest Full Text from Google Scholar, Don't Pay!

Look for the Find It @ UWest link next to the Google Scholar results (if you click on the title link, it may ask you to pay). Our link will take you to the full text we have available in our databases:

Click on Find It @ UWest at the right hand side.

You may also find other full text links on the right hand side. If you run into problems accessing Google Scholar, or you cannot see the Find It @ UWest link, you may reset UWest settings by going to this link and saving the setting: https://scholar.google.com/scholar_setprefs?instq=UWest+Library

If there is no link, or if the link is broken, click on Cite, it will provide you with the bibliographic information to get from citation to full text.
