Working off campus
You can use this dedicated link to Google Scholar which presents UCL Libraries links to full text wherever we have access to an electronic journal. Look out for 'SFX@UCL' over on the right hand side of your search results and follow the links to authenticate (using your username and password).
You can also edit your Settings in Google Scholar to include other libraries for which you have membership. This is a good idea on your computer, laptop or other device. Click on Settings, then Library Links (left hand side of the screen) and then type the name of the library or libraries you want to include in the search results. For example, if you are a member of Senate House Library, you may want to find the library and then confirm you want to include the library in your search results by saving.
Working on campus
When you are on campus (using a networked UCL IOE computer) you don't need to use a special Google Scholar link, as you will be recognised as an IOE user and 'SFX@UCL' links will appear automatically.
A general tip about working off campus
UCL Library Services provide access to a wide range of electronic resources: eBooks, eJournals, databases, official publications, reports, etc.. When you are working off campus it is necessary to identify yourself as a student or member of staff in order to access these resources. You will be prompted to enter your username and password at the Single Sign-on page at the point of access.
