Answer

Follow the steps outlined below to configure Google Scholar to show library content (i.e. both subcribed and open access materials) from UCL Libraries and Senate House Library which is one of the University of London libraries.

1.  Open Scholar at http://scholar.google.com

2.  Go to Settings as shown in the image below:

2.  Select Library Links:

3.  Find the libraries you want to add, e.g. IOE (now choose UCL), Senate House Libraries (for there is more than one library in Senate House).  If you have access to others, be sure to add these here too and then check the boxes from the options and click on SAVE as shown below:

4.  Now when you search, you will see content that is available from all three libraries (or however many you have entered).  You will still need to authenticate to get access to the subscribed resources and you can do this by selecting your institution and then typing in your username and password.
