Google Scholar provides a way to search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other websites.

Finding full text

Use Google Scholar Library Links to find full text available through the University of Sheffield Library:

  • Connect to Google Scholar
  • Click 'Settings'
  • Click 'Library links'
  • Search for 'Sheffield' in the search box ('Show library access links for:')
  • Select 'University of Sheffield - findit@Sheffield'
  • Click 'Save'

When you search, you'll see 'findit@Sheffield' in your search results. This will take you to StarPlus where you'll be able to connect to our subscribed full text content. 

Note that we cannot subscribe to all the content indexed by Google Scholar, so you will not be able to access the full text of everything you find via Google Scholar.
