Many of the articles Google Scholar finds require a paid subscription for access to the complete full text. There are two ways to ensure that you get search results with our subscriptions highlighted with @ University of Sydney links to the full text.


  1. Start your research via the Google Scholar link on the Library's A/Z database lists - you will be prompted to authenticate, and after that you will be able to access the results in the library's collection. This can identify more University of Sydney results than Option 2.

  2. Change the settings in Google Scholar. To do this, Click Settings > Library Links.
    Search for "University of Sydney", then check:
    University of Sydney Library - University of Sydney
    UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY - ProQuest Fulltext ( if found )
    Click Save.
    Do your search, and you will be prompted to authenticate when you click a "University of Sydney" link.

Get LibX

Another way is to use LibX, which is a plug-in for Chrome and Firefox. It  lets you quickly search Google Scholar, our catalogue, or CrossSearch.
