Have you seen the new Google Scholar feature?


  • If you use Google Scholar you’re going to be pretty darn excited about this new feature Google announced recently.

Late last year Google announced a new feature within Google Scholar allowing researchers to create their own personal collection of articles.

The new feature, called My Library, enables you to save articles right from the search page, organise them by topic and use Scholar’s full-text search to find what you are looking for. You can arrange your library exactly as you like, while still accessing all the usual Google Scholar goodies (citing articles, related articles, formatted citations). Pretty exciting stuff! Set up your Google Scholar Library now.

While you’re off exploring My Library, now’s a good time to ensure you have your Library Links also set up. Library Links allow you to set up Google Scholar to provide you with links to articles subscribed to by Griffith. Once setup, Google Scholar will automatically recognise your affiliation with Griffith and provide the appropriate links (you may be prompted to enter your Griffith username and password when accessing article fulltext).” Check your Library links settings now.
