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:

If you are off-campus and use the main URL,, 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.
