Google Scholar uses the Google search engine to find scholarly citations and publications online.  It looks at academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites for:

  • Peer-reviewed papers
  • Theses
  • Books
  • Abstracts
  • Articles

While the full text is sometimes available for free through Google, the search results also include citations for articles that are not free.

To change your Google Scholar settings to access full-text resources through the NWTC Library from off-campus, click on  at the top of the screen.

Then click on Library links on the left-hand side of the screen.

Search for northeast wisconsin and check all of the boxes that appear.  It is also a good idea to add Open WorldCat as well to connect with other libraries in your area.  Then save your settings.
