Not all materials listed in Google Scholar are freely available. Few books will be entirely online, for instance. In many cases, especially with journal articles, when you click on a title in your search results, you will only see an abstract of the article, and be asked to pay to see the entire article. However, Google Scholar also allows you to hook into our library subscriptions.
If you are on campus, Google Scholar recognizes your location and automatically shows you the link to the library materials.
If you are off campus, there are two ways of seeing links to library subscriptions:
You can set Google Scholar to recognize which school you are from.
Be sure to check the main title link, which leads to the "official version", any other links, which often lead to freely accessible versions of the articles, AND the SCSU Journal Finder link, which will check if the article is accessible in our databases.
