About This Search

Google Scholar


Google Scholar

Google Scholar uses the Google search engine to search specifically for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports.

Google Scholar results include links to Brown University Library resources. These links will appear automatically if you search from an on-campus computer or use this URL:

http://scholar.google.com/scholar_setprefs?num=30&instq=&inst=12301228881857859123&inststart=0&submit=Save+Preferences

If you are off-campus and use the main URL, http://scholar.google.com, you must go to "Scholar Preferences" and search for "Brown".

Please note that you must also log into your VPN client or to EZPROXY if you are off-campus.

The Brown links appear as:

  • Find It @ Brown Full Text at the end of the article title if the Library subscribes to full text or
  • Find It @ Brown to search the Library's catalog or place an interlibrary loan request.
