When you use Google Scholar on the QUB network it automatically allows full-text access to journals for which we hold a subscription. When you are working from home (i.e. off-campus) this doesn't happen and access is denied. You can set up Google to identify content to which QUB has access and link through to it. You need to do the following:
1. Click the Menu icon in Google Scholar:
2. From the settings menu click on Library Links:
3. Search for "Queen's University Belfast", [NB the search in Scholar is very precise - you need to include the apostrophe] tick the box and Save:
4. Once the Qconnect library link is activated a link will appear beside any references available in full-text to QUB. If you follow this link you will be directed to the full-text.
