Google Scholar provides a way to search for scholarly literature. Although 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, sometimes the sheer volume of results can be overwhelming and you may not be able to access the full text of the content you find.

The University of Sheffield Library has teamed up with Google Scholar to allow you to link through to full text articles that we provide access to straight from your Google Scholar results.

Finding full text

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

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